Do you want to plan your 2014 offseason? Well, thankfully Major League Soccer announced today the full calendar (outside one important item).
The calendar includes the dates of the MLS Expansion, Waiver and Re-entry drafts, as well as the MLS Combine and SuperDraft. The MLS Caribbean Combine, which debuted in 2014, will again take place in the lead-up to the SuperDraft.
Once FC Dallas enters into the offseason mode (hopefully in December), we will really begin diving into every single one of these items. Early reports have indicated that the Dispersal draft will take place before MLS Cup. Once we have that date we will share that with you.
