The team consists of eight players and two goalkeepers, who will seek to secure their second consecutive victory after lifting the Skills Challenge trophy over MLS last year in Los Angeles. It was a close call, but the Liga MX All-Stars defeated the MLS All-Stars by a score of 26–25, with the tiebreaker scored by Cruz Azul forward Jonathan Rodríguez in the Crossbar Challenge.
