Premier League giants Arsenal will face MLS’ best when they square off in the 2016 All-Star Game at Avaya Stadium in San Jose on July 28.

Major League Soccer announced the news with a video featuring Toronto FC’s Sebastian Giovinco and Herculez Gomez, among others.

The Gunners will be the sixth Premier League club to participate in the All-Star Game. Their North London rivals Tottenham lost 2-1 to MLS last year in Colorado.

Arsenal will be the 13th international opponent in the All-Star Game. MLS has won the last two matches and eight times overall under this format.
