How to Watch
The 2022 MLS SuperDraft will be held virtually for the third year in a row starting at 2PM CT. The show will stream live on MLSsoccer.com, the MLS App, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as clubs make their First-Round selections, starting with expansion club Charlotte FC selecting first. Rounds 2 and 3 will not be streamed but will be tracked live via the MLS SuperDraft tracker on January 11.
How the SuperDraft Works
There are three rounds in the SuperDraft, with each team allowed one pick per round. The first pick this year goes to expansion side Charlotte FC, followed by the teams that did not qualify for the Audi 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs beginning with the team with the fewest 2021 regular-season points (3 points per win, 1 point per tie). The remaining positions are ranked by the fewest regular-season points among the teams that were eliminated in the same round of the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs.
