As the 2022 MLS regular season winds down with the season ending earlier due to the staging of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar from 20 November through to 18 December, the nominations for the end of season awards have been confirmed.

Finalists for the 2022 MLS year-end awards, honoring top performers on and off the field during the regular season, were announced by Major League Soccer.

MLS Year-End Awards will be determined through voting from three groups:

  • Current MLS players
  • MLS coaches, technical directors/general managers
  • Select media members representing local and national outlets who consistently covered the 2022 MLS regular season

Fans will be able to cast their votes for the best action of the season via both the Goal of the Year and MLS Save of the Year through the official MLS website.
