2022 MLS SuperDraft

The 2022 MLS SuperDraft will be the 23rd edition of the SuperDraft conducted by Major League Soccer. The SuperDraft is held every January prior to the start of the MLS season. Previously, the SuperDraft had been held in conjunction with the annual January United Soccer Coaches convention.

This year the MLS SuperDraft will be on Tuesday, Jan. 11

Since 2021, the SuperDraft has consisted of three rounds. Clubs that received fourth-round picks for this draft through previous trades will receive compensatory picks instead.

Format

  1. Any expansion teams receive the first picks. MLS has announced that Charlotte FC will begin to play as an expansion team in 2022.
  2. Non-playoff clubs receive the next picks in reverse order of prior season finish.
  3. Teams that made the MLS Cup Playoffs are then ordered by which round of the playoffs they are eliminated.
  4. MLS Cup winners receive the last pick, and losers receive the second-to-last pick.
