MLS announces players available for selection in Expansion Draft Tuesday

NEW YORK –– Major League Soccer today announced the list of players available for selection in the 2016 Expansion Draft. The Expansion Draft will provide an opportunity for expansion clubs Atlanta United and Minnesota United FC to select up to five players each from the list of 259 available players. Atlanta United will have the first selection in the Expansion Draft.

The 2016 Expansion Draft will be streamed live on MLSsoccer.com, tomorrow, December 13, beginning at 11 a.m. PT.

Each current MLS club had the opportunity to protect 11 players from their 2016 roster. Generation adidas players (who did not graduate at the end of the 2016 season) and Homegrown Players on a club’s off-budget roster are automatically protected and do not count against a team’s 11 protected roster spots. Designated Players are not automatically protected. If a Designated Player has a no trade clause in his contract, then the club must protect him in the Expansion Draft.

Once one player has been selected from a team’s unprotected roster, that team may not lose any further players (all additional players from that team become ineligible for selection).

FREE AGENCY

A total of 37 MLS players are eligible for Free Agency. Starting at 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Dec. 13, Free Agents may engage in negotiations with MLS clubs outside of their previous club.

Players 28 years of age and older with eight MLS service years who are out of contract, or have had their option declined, are eligible for Free Agency in 2016, allowing them the freedom to negotiate a new contract with any MLS club, including their previous club, subject to certain restrictions. A player has fulfilled a year of service if they were on a club’s roster prior to August 15 or played in at least one regular season or postseason game in the relevant year subject to USL loan exceptions.
