HERRIMAN, Utah – Real Salt Lake Captain Chicho Arango is one of four finalists for the 2024 Major League Soccer All-Star Captain Fan Vote presented by Captain Morgan, MLS announced today. Joining Arango as a potential captain for the July 24 match against the Liga MX All-Stars are Luciano Acosta of FC Cincinnati, Juan ‘Cucho’ Hernández of the Columbus Crew and Lionel Messi of Inter Miami CF.

The MLS All-Star Captain Fan Vote presented by Captain Morgan opens today, July 2, 2024, and will remain open through 10 a.m. MT next Tuesday, July 9. All fans can participate in the MLS All-Star Captain Fan Vote presented by Captain Morgan on or via the MLS App, and every fan has the unique opportunity to spice up their social media by sharing their pick. Fans are eligible to vote once per day through the duration of the voting period.

Monday, Arango and RSL Homegrown DF Justen Glad were named amongst the 30 players selected for the 2024 MLS All-Star Game presented by Target. For the Utah side, Arango and Glad are the first Claret-and-Cobalt All-Stars since 2021 (Damir Kreilach), and this year’s match is the first with multiple RSL selections since 2015 (Nick Rimando, Tony Beltran). The 2024 selection marks the first-ever All-Star honors for either player.

The 2024 MLS All-Star captain will wear a custom armband designed by local Columbus artist and Captain Morgan partner, Adam Hernandez. The armband is unique to the 2024 MLS All-Star Game and highlights the importance of encouraging fans to own their own spice and unleash memorable moments for everyone.

Chicho is one of 10 MLS club captains selected to this year’s midsummer festivities, and one of just two Colombians named amongst the 30 players. Glad is one of four American-born selections, with the duo proudly representing RSL as one of the 18 MLS sides to have participation in this year’s match. Both Arango – currently leading the MLS Golden Boot race with 16 goals and 10 assists in 20 games played so far this season – and Glad, who has started all 15 of his MLS appearances thus far in 2024 – are amongst the 12 players selected through the fan, player and media voting processes, while an additional 16 players were named by Columbus Crew Head Coach Wilfried Nancy, as the Crew will host the July 24 event.
