LAFC forward and reigning Golden Boot presented by Audi winner Denis Bouanga and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris were among the 30 players honored today as MLS unveiled the complete roster for the 2024 MLS All-Star Game presented by Target.

The 2024 MLS All-Star Game presented by Target will be played on Wednesday, July 24, and features the MLS All-Stars taking on the best of LIGA MX at Field, home of the Columbus Crew. In conjunction with LIGA MX, the MLS All-Star roster was expanded to 30 players in 2024 to provide additional depth. The roster was selected through a combination of fan, player, and media voting (12 players), designations by MLS All-Star head coach Wilfried Nancy of the host club, the Columbus Crew (16 players), and a pair of selections by MLS Commissioner Don Garber.

Bouanga, 29, will be making his second appearance as an MLS All-Star. After a historic 2023 that saw him score 38 goals across all competitions, Bouanga is once again the focal point of the LAFC attack in 2024, leading the team with 13 goals and a career-high nine assists in 20 games. His 13 goals are the third-most in MLS this season.

A member of the 2023 MLS Best XI, Bouanga joined LAFC in August of 2022 and helped lead the team to the 2022 Supporters’ Shield and 2022 MLS Cup title and appearances in the 2023 MLS Cup final and 2023 Concacaf Champions League final.

Lloris, 37, earns an All-Star selection in his first season in MLS. The legendary French goalkeeper ranks second in MLS with eight clean sheets and has led an LAFC squad that is tied for the Western Conference lead with 23 goals allowed this season. Lloris and the LAFC defense established a new club record shutout streak from May 4 – June 15, not conceding a goal for 549 minutes.

A World Cup champion with France in 2018 and a member of the team that advanced to the 2022 World Cup final, Lloris is his country’s all-time leader in appearances (145) and has made the most appearances ever by a goalkeeper in the World Cup (20). A three-time Ligue 1 (France) Goalkeeper of the Year, Lloris enjoyed a sparkling career with Tottenham Hotspur where he helped his team to the 2019 Champions League final.
