MLS, Liga MX announce details for joint 2021 All-Star Game in Los Angeles

Major League Soccer and Mexico’s Liga MX already put their best teams in two dual-national competitions: the Leagues Cup and Campeones Cup. An All-Star game on American soil is next in line.

MLS and Liga MX all-star teams will face each other on Aug. 25 at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles. Commissioner Don Garber announced Los Angeles Football Club’s Bob Bradley will coach the MLS side. The match will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1 and Univision.

“It should be noted that this game will be broadcasted in almost 200 countries around the world and that it will be the only game of its type,” Garber said at a news conference Wednesday in Los Angeles. “No other league has done anything like this: two leagues coming together.”

Garber did not disclose details on events supplementing the game, but said there will be an MLS All-Star Skills Challenge and MLS All-Star Concert. An unprecedented meeting between MLS and Liga MX owners also will take place. Community events will be announced later.
