The starting 22 players were selected on ballots from players, coaches, media and online fan voting. Wambach and Marta (FC Gold Pride) earned team captain designations and will help pick the teams at a playground pick-em event two days before the game.

Boston defender Amy LePeilbetreceived the highest number of votes among player balloting for the second year in a row with 70% of players voting for the league’s 2009 Defender of the Year.

The top selections within the media were Washington Freedom’sSonia Bompastor (100%) and Atlanta Beat’s Eniola Aluko (100%), while the fans voted Wambach and Marta as their top two WPS All-Stars respectively.
