The parking lots outside Sporting Park are open and fans are filtering in for Wednesday’s MLS All-Star Game, which will kick off around 8:25 p.m. on ESPN2.

Eric Alvarez and his son, Alex, of Topeka, are among the crowd at the Soccer Celebration in the Nebraska Furniture Mart parking lot. And it happens to be Alex’s first birthday.

The Alvarez family are second-year season-ticket holders to Sporting KC.
