The 2010 Women's Professional Soccer All-Star Game was the second WPS All-Star Game, taking place on June 30, 2010.

Atlanta Beat named host[edit]

WPS awarded the 2010 All-Star Game to Atlanta, Georgia in a press release on March 22, 2010. The venue was KSU Soccer Stadium, home of the Atlanta Beat.

WPS All-Stars[edit]


Twenty-two of the thirty-six WPS All-Stars were chosen by vote. 25% of the total vote came from fans voting online, 25% from media, 25% from coaches (who were prohibited from voting for their team's players), and 25% from players. The results of the voting were released on June 9, 2010. [2]

The top three fan picks this year were Wambach, Marta, and Hope Solo. Three players - Wambach, Marta, and Kelly Smith - topped out the coach's voting with 100% of coaches voting for them. Likewise, two players - Sonia Bompastor and Eniola Aluko - got 100% of the media vote. Along with those six players, Shannon Boxx, Christine Sinclair, Lori Lindsey, and Amy LePeilbet rounded out the top ten.

At-Large Selections[edit]

The remaining fourteen players on the All-Star rosters were selected by WPS Commissioner Tonya Antonucci and the two All-Star coaches Albertin Montoya and Paul Riley, who were the coaches of the two teams topping the standings at the time, on June 14. [3]
