Major League Soccer released their 2013 MLS All-Star Ballot on Monday, featuring 115 players across all 19 MLS teams.
Fans can choose one goalkeeper and ten field players when they vote and can vote online, through text message (SMS), on Twitter, and between July 3 and July 10 using FIFA Soccer 13 Ultimate Team, part of the AT&T MLS All-Star “In The Game” Challenge.
The top ten players in terms over overall percentage of votes will make the All-Star Fan XI, with the rest of the squad of 32 (4 goalkeepers, 8 defenders, 12 midfielders, 7 forwards) selected by Peter Vermes, who will coach the squad, and MLS Commissioner Don Garber.
The MLS All-Stars will be facing AS Roma on July 31 at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kansas, the first time the league has ever faced Serie A opposition.
Each MLS team has six representatives on the ballot (The Chicago Fire have seven due to Mike Magee being acquired from the LA Galaxy after being one of their six). For a full list of the ballot, continue reading after the jump.
