The 2021 Major League Soccer All-Star roster is in and headed by USMNT Gold Cup winners Matt Turner and Miles Robinson as well as Mexican stars Javier Hernandez and Carlos Vela.

28 MLS players were chosen to represent the league against Liga MX All-Stars in the first cross-border match on August 25 at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles. The two North American leagues will bring forth their best players to compete in a set of challenges before culminating in the All-Star game.

MLS players were chosen on three bases: coach’s pick, commissioner’s pick or voted in by fans. 13 players were determined by a combined vote of fan, media and players, while All-Star head coach Bob Bradley chose 13 and MLS commissioner Don Garber picked two.
