Tickets go on sale Friday for the 2024 MLS All-Star game, which will again feature MLS All-Stars against a team of Liga MX All-Stars from Mexico.

The game is set for July 24 at Lower.com Field in Columbus, Ohio, the league announced Monday. Apple TV will live stream the game via MLS Season Pass. Tickets can be purchased at MLSsoccer.com/AllStar beginning at 10 a.m. Friday.

It will be the third MLS All-Star Week to pit MLS against Liga MX as the soccer leagues continue their partnership, which also includes major events on the soccer calendar like Leagues Cup and Campeones Cup.

The intent is to showcase “the global and rising stars of our leagues, and the strength of our sport in North America,” MLS Executive Vice President of Properties and Events Camilo Durana said in a statement. “Our previous encounters set a high bar for intensity and competition in all-star games.”

Liga MX president Mikel Arriola called the matchup a privilege and said his league will “bring together its best players to form a competitive team.”

“We are very excited about the opportunity to reconnect and be close to the Mexican fanbase in the United States,” he said in the statement.

Will Lionel Messi play in 2024 MLS All-Star game?
