August 1, 2018 is going to be a big day for soccer in the city of Atlanta. The “Old Lady” of Italy Juventus FC will be in town for the 2018 MLS All-Star Game at The Benz. The Italian giants already sent Edgar Davids to Atlanta as an ambassador, and Davids had nothing but good things to say about the game day environment and future of Atlanta United. Thanks to the wonders of the internet and Twitter, we now know what the MLS All-Stars will look like when they take the field that day:

In terms of MLS All-Star kits, I actually like this one a lot. It’s simple, clean, and will probably sell pretty well. An interesting development out of this is that it almost assuredly means that Juventus will be wearing their away kit, as their home strip features the iconic black and white stripes. I can already see ATLUTD fans lining up outside MBS at 5:00 am when these go on sale... Okay, maybe not, but I’m sure they’ll sell a few Almiron and Barco ones. I’ll take a Nagbe, please.
