Adidas MiCoach Debuts in MLS All-Star Game Tonight

The debut of “smart soccer” is nearly upon us. In a few minutes, the MLS All Stars will kick off against reigning European champions Chelsea, and each player will be wearing data-tracking technology between his shoulder blades.

The equipment will transmit each player’s on-field metrics to his coach on the sideline, in real time.

SB Nation filed a report today on the landmark technology. Take a look:

It’s a brave new world.

As for the game, we like this MLS linuep: Wondolowski and Henry up top, trailed by a midfield of De Ro, Osvaldo Alonso, Beckham and Donovan. The backline is De Merit and Aurelien Collin in the middle and Justin Morrow and Steven Beitashour on the flanks.

Not bad. Morrow and Beitashour are not experienced, but they are both talented and on the rise. This will be a great test for them.
