ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Soccer has taken over Atlanta for the past two seasons with the induction of Atlanta United, and one of team's most high profile rap artist fans is musical artist T-Pain.

The season ticker holder has snagged an opportunity to perform the National Anthem at the MLS All-Star Game in Atlanta on August 1. 

“I am honored to perform the National Anthem to kick off the MLS All-Star Game presented by Target,” T-Pain said. “Thank you to Major League Soccer, the city of Atlanta, and all the fans.”

Events centered around the big game will also feature other well-known Atlanta rap artists. Waka Flocka will be a key figure at the pre-match weekend block party and 2 Chainz will be headlining a free concert in Atlanta’s Historic Fourth Ward Park.

Tickets to the 2018 MLS All-Star Game start at $35 and are available through Ticketmaster.com. Click here to view a full schedule of festivities.
