Next year's All-Star game will be played at Citi Field.

It is the first time the Mets are hosting the Midsummer Classic since 1964, the year Shea Stadium opened. This is the longest span that any Major League Baseball team has waited to host the game.

The last time the game was held in the city was during the old Yankee Stadium's final year in 2008.

The official announcement will be made at City Hall Wednesday.

NY1 will cover the announcement live at 11:30 a.m.
