The 2021 MLS All-Star Game presented by Target saw the MLS All-Stars face off against the LIGA MX All-Stars on Wednesday, August 25, at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles. For the first time ever, two rival leagues went head-to-head in an unprecedented matchup that was the showpiece event of the summer, as the entire soccer community united to celebrate the sport and soccer culture in North America.
Bob Bradley, the three-time MLS Coach of the Year with host club Los Angeles Football Club, coached the MLS All-Stars. In 2019, Bradley led LAFC to the Supporters’ Shield as the club set a new MLS regular season points record.
With the city of Los Angeles as the perfect backdrop, MLS All-Star week came to life with both Leagues leaving a lasting legacy through fan engagement opportunities and charitable initiatives that fostered more inclusive and equitable communities including providing access to soccer in underserved communities through the MLS WORKS Community Day presented by Target and MLS WORKS Day of Service presented by Wells Fargo, spotlighting the style of soccer during the MLS All-Star Skills Challenge presented by AT&T 5G, and celebrating the intersection of soccer and music at the MLS All-Star Concert presented by Heineken®.
