2020 MLS Awards Ballot

LA Galaxy players nominated for MLS 2020 End-of-Year Awards

Major League Soccer released its year-end award ballots Wednesday, featuring the candidates eligible for each of the league's honors in 2020.

Players, media and technical staff will vote for each category, with each group representing a third of the vote. Those same voters will also submit their votes for the annual Best XI, open to any player who appeared in a 2020 MLS regular-season match.

Voting begins on Oct. 29 and ends on Nov. 9. Finalists for each award will be announced on Nov. 11.
