How this draft will work:
MLS Expansion Draft guidelines and rules
(per MLS Player Department)
There will be ten (10) rounds.
NYCFC and Orlando City are permitted three (3) minutes to make each selection.
Once the Player has been selected, the club that "lost" the player is permitted two (2) minutes to add a new player to their protected roster.
There will be a two (2) minute intermission between the fifth and sixth rounds (i.e., after the 10th pick).
There will be NO timeouts during the Expansion Draft.
Failure to Make Selection in Designated Time
Expansion clubs that fail to make their selection in time must wait until their next pick to make a selection.
Clubs that fail to add a player to their protected roster in time will lose their ability to do so.
No trades are permitted during the Expansion Draft.
