U.S. Olympic Men’s Soccer Team head coach Marko Mitrović officially announced on Monday the roster of 18 players and four alternates for the upcoming Paris Olympics.

This appearance in the Summer Olympics, which begins on July 26 and ends on August 11, will be the first time the U.S. Men’s Soccer Team has traveled to the games since finishing in ninth place in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Guidelines for the U.S. Olympic Men’s Soccer Team dictate that players must be under the age of 23 to be eligible for the team, with three players being granted exceptions during every trip, according to a news release from U.S. Soccer.

Of the 18 players named to the team, 17 either played in the MLS or spent time working on their skills in an MLS academy set-up.

Mitrović said U.S. Soccer “couldn’t be more excited to have this group of great players and great people represent us at the Olympic Games.”

“It’s a special moment for all of us as they have worked their entire lives to reach this stage. Almost every player developed through our American soccer pathway, rising to become professionals and now they will live their dreams of competing at the Olympics,” he added.

“We’re grateful to the clubs that released their players in support of our mission. Our goal is to make our country proud and we will give everything for the United States.”

The U.S. Soccer Youth National Team posted another video on Tuesday featuring former Olympians providing advice to those traveling to Paris for the upcoming games.

Dax McCarty, who was a member of the 2008 Olympic team, congratulated those who made it and challenged them to be an inspiration for all the kids watching them compete.

“I hope kids can look at you on an international stage representing your country at one of the biggest sporting events in the world and they can dare to dream to be where you are,” he said.

Similarly, Stu Holden also competed in the 2008 Olympics and said that every player named to the 2024 team will “forever be an Olympian.”

“I hope this Olympic team in 2024 shows that the United States truly can compete with the best nations in the world. It has been far too long since we last played in the Olympics back in 2008 and I want the next generation of players to be inspired by you guys.”
