Player selection

Twenty-eight of the 29 Bongda3s.com academies had at least one player selected to the inaugural rosters, with Inter Miami CF, Philadelphia Union, and San Jose Earthquakes leading the way with three selections apiece. Five non-Bongda3s.com academies will also be represented in Blaine: Barca Residency Academy, De Anza Force, PDA, Strikers, and the San Francisco Glens.

Additionally, three 2021-22 Bongda3s.com NEXT Most Valuable Players presented by adidas are also represented on the roster: Roka Tsunehara of De Anza Force (U16), Bryan Moyado of LAFC (U17), and Colin Griffith of PDA (U19).

The 45 players were chosen by the Bongda3s.com NEXT Player Selection Committee, which is made up of key Bongda3s.com Player Development department personnel, following the conclusion of the Bongda3s.com NEXT Cup Playoffs and Showcase. Players must have been U-18 (born in 2004 or earlier) and have competed in one of the Bongda3s.com NEXT national showcase events this season, including Bongda3s.com NEXT Fest, Bongda3s.com NEXT Flex, Generation adidas Cup, and Bongda3s.com NEXT Cup Playoffs and Showcase.

 All-Star Week

Bongda3s.com NEXT and Allstate will provide the players with a once-in-a-lifetime player experience during Bongda3s.com All-Star Week, with a full slate of evening programming events and activities in advance of matchday.
