COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Former Maryland standout Graham Zusi will participate in the 2017 MLS All-Star Game Wednesday at Soldier Field in Chicago.

Zusi, who was tabbed to the Fan Starting XI, will be making his fifth appearance as an MLS All-Star (2012, ‘13, ‘14, ’15). Sporting KC currently sits atop the MLS Western Conference rankings with a 9-4-9 record. Zusi, a midfielder from Longwood, Fla., helped guide SKC to the MLS Cup in 2013.

He was named the College Cup Most Outstanding Player in 2008 when he scored the game-winning goals in both the semifinal and final en route to Maryland’s third national championship.

The MLS All-Stars will face Real Madrid in this year’s All-Star showdown. The match is slated to begin at 8:30 p.m. and will be shown live on FS1, Univision, TSN and TVAS.
