The Mets will host the 2013 All-Star Game at Citi Field, people with knowledge of the situation told SI.com.

While the decision isn't being characterized as "official," plans are already in the works.

The team has not hosted the All-Star Game since 1964, the longest drought of any franchise.

Mets owners Fred and Jeff Wilpon dropped a bombshell yesterday by announcing they seek limited partners to buy 20-25 percent of the team in the wake of what they characterized as "uncertainty" following the lawsuit filed against them by Irving Picard, the trustee liquidating Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities Inc.
