Major League Soccer announced Tuesday that four-time World Cup participant and MLS standout DaMarcus Beasley has been named an MLS ambassador during the competition.

As an MLS ambassador, Beasley will represent MLS and participate in league events around the World Cup, including media interviews and watch parties in New York City and in Doha, Qatar in the coming weeks.

Beasley represented the U.S. men’s national team and is the only U.S. male player in history to compete in World Cups (2002, 2006, 2010, 2014). Playing as a left winger and left wingback, Beasley represented the USMNT 126 times in his 16-year international career. He accumulated more than 400 appearances at several clubs, including the Chicago Fire and Houston Dynamo in MLS, Club Puebla in Mexico as well as at PSV Eindhoven (Netherlands), Manchester City (England), Rangers FC (Scotland) and Hannover 96 (Germany).

For club and country, Beasley lifted 18 trophies including the 2003 Supporters’ Shield with the Fire, the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup with Chicago (2000, 2003) and Houston (2018), and five Concacaf Gold Cups with the USMNT (2002, 2005, 2007, 2013, 2017).

He received multiple individual awards, including the 2005 Concacaf Gold Cup Golden Boot. In MLS, Beasley was named into the 2003 MLS Best XI team and was a five-time MLS All-Star selection (2001, 2002, 2003, 2015, 2017).

Beasley, who is fluent in Spanish, retired from the sport at 37 following the 2019 MLS season with the Dynamo, after a 20-year professional career. He is part-owner and director of football operations at Fort Wayne FC in USL League Two.

Beasley also will be on-location in Doha as a FOX Sports digital analyst and host.
