About the MLS SuperDraft

The SuperDraft is the player acquisition mechanism in which MLS teams select the top collegiate players in the United States. 

In 2021, the SuperDraft will consist of three rounds in which players can be selected. Clubs will make their selections in reverse order of the 2020 regular season standings, taking into account postseason performance in the Audi 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs. The Quakes currently hold the 12th pick in the first, second and third round. Click here to view the complete draft order.

 

Which players can be selected? 

Players eligible for selection include college seniors, Generation adidas players, and players that have waived their college eligibility by signing to play in a domestic professional league. The list of players eligible for selection is available at https://www.mlssoccer.com/superdraft/2021/prospects

 

How to watch

The first round of the MLS SuperDraft will stream live on SJEarthquakes.com. Every pick can be followed as they happen with MLS's SuperDraft tracker. 

 

What happens after the SuperDraft?

Following the MLS SuperDraft, Generation adidas players and select additional draftees will join their MLS clubs for the 2021 preseason, while others may continue to compete for their colleges before reporting to their MLS clubs in late May.
