MLS Supplemental Draft


MLS Supplemental Draft

The MLS Supplemental Draft had a number of incarnations:

From 1996 to 1999, all players playing in the United States currently playing professionally in the United Soccer Leagues were eligible for the MLS Supplemental Draft, where they could be selected by all Major League Soccer teams. Players graduating college were entered into a separate MLS College Draft. The division between the two was eliminated in 2000, when they were combined into a single MLS SuperDraft.

In 2003, MLS held a Supplemental draft to distribute players who were signed by the league after the SuperDraft.

From 2005 to 2008, with the expansion of developmental rosters, the creation of reserve teams, and contractual limits on the length of the MLS Superdraft included in the MLS Players Union Contract, MLS re-instituted the Supplemental draft, which was held after the SuperDraft those years.

In 2009 and 2010, due to roster changes resulting in fewer developmental spaces, MLS again discontinued the Supplemental Draft.[1]

In January 2011 it was announced that the Supplemental Draft would be re-instated.[2]
