The Major League Soccer expansion draft is explained


Expansion Draft is one of the primary forms of recruiting players for new entrants to the league. Major League Soccer expansion teams are given the opportunity to make five selections from a list of available players from each existing team.

This year, Charlotte FC is the only club that will choose in the draft as they look to make their debut in 2022.

Before the draft, each team in the league must create a list of 12 “protected players.” Not all players on that list are then eligible to be selected by the expansion page.

Players without protected status must be selected by the newest MLS member and replaced immediately.

Charlotte FC will be able to make five selections from the list of qualified players.

During the draft, Charlotte will be allowed three minutes for each election without timeouts. Trading is not allowed during the draft.

Five teams that had players selected by Austin FC in last year’s draft will be exempt from having players selected: LA Galaxy, Nashville SC, New York Red Bulls, Orlando City SC and San Jose Earthquakes.

You will find the list of all qualified players here.
