List of foreign MLS players

This is a list of foreign players in Major League Soccer. The following players:

  1. Have played at least one MLS regular season game. Players who were signed by MLS clubs, but only played in playoff games, U.S. Open Cup games, or did not play in any competitive games at all, are not included.
  2. Are considered foreign, i.e., outside Canada or the United States determined by the following:
A player is considered foreign if he is not eligible to play for the national team of Canada or the United States.

More specifically,

  • If a player has been capped on international level, the national team is used; if he has been capped by more than one country, the highest level (or the most recent) team is used. These include American and Canadian players with dual citizenship.
  • If a player has not been capped on international level, his country of birth is used, except those who were born abroad from American or Canadian parents, or moved to Canada or the United States at a young age, and those who clearly indicated to have switched his nationality to another nation.

Up to now, 127 different nations have been represented in MLS. Dominican Republic was the most recent nation to be represented when Edison Azcona made his MLS debut playing for Inter Miami CF on May 2, 2021 at Nashville SC.

In bold: players who have played at least one MLS game in the most recent season (2021 Major League Soccer season), and are still at the clubs for which they have played. This does not include current players of a MLS club who have not played a MLS game in the current season.
