The SuperDraft will be conducted in four rounds with 26 players selected in each round. The first round will take place during the stream, with Round 2 happening offstream later on Thursday. Rounds 3 and 4 will take place on Jan. 13. To streamline the process, clubs now will be permitted three minutes — down from four previously — to make their selections, and there will be no intermission between rounds. See the complete draft rules and procedures for more details.
The livestream will feature cameras embedded with players and club decision-makers for real-time draftee reactions, live look-ins on club draft rooms, and instant engagement from fans on Twitter during the first round. Additional content and analysis will be provided across MLS league and club digital and social channels.
