The Houston Dynamo and Mayor Annise Parker announced Wednesday the schedule of events leading up to the 2010 AT&T MLS All-Star Game on July 28. The match will be held at Reliant Stadium and features 18-time English and three-time European champion Manchester United against the Major League Soccer All-Stars.

"Houston knows how to put on big sporting events. We are a soccer city, and we are the future of Major League Soccer, and we hope this is the beginning of a regular circuit of international teams," said Mayor Parker.

The week kicks off on Saturday, July 24, with the Dynamo Charities Go for Goal 5K Run and the Dynamo Diesel Kids Fun Run.

On Sunday, July 25, the Dynamo will host a soccer film festival at the Angelika Film Center in downtown Houston featuring soccer movies, with proceeds going to charity.
