Ajani Nixon and Adrian Wibowo join the 2023 MLS NEXT All-Star Game roster

Released by MLS NEXT, the 2023 MLS NEXT All-Star Game roster has been announced including details and broadcast information for the second annual all-star match presented by Allstate. On Wednesday, July 19 at 10:30 a.m. ET, the game will provide North America’s up-and-coming stars a chance to display their skills in an East vs. West showdown at the Naval Academy’s Glenn Warner Soccer Facility in Annapolis, Maryland.

Players of the 2023 MLS NEXT All-Star Game will participate in the All-Star Skills Challenge presented by AT&T 5G on July 18 and the MLS All-Star Game on July 19, as well as team training throughout MLS All-Star Week. Prior to their match on Wednesday morning, each 2023 MLS NEXT All-Star Game team will also hold its own practice sessions.

“The MLS NEXT All-Star Game has proven to be the premier showcase for the top youth soccer players in North America,” said MLS NEXT General Manager Justin Bokmeyer. “Each of these talented athletes have earned this opportunity through their tremendous performances this season and we are excited for them to experience a memorable week in Washington, D.C.”
