MLS Supplemental Draft Live Thread

New, comments


Major League Soccer's Supplemental Draft is not televised, but only streamed. The teams have retreated from Kansas City to their hometowns as many already opened training camps. This draft is held via conference call and can be followed via MLSSoccer.com's live stream.

For the real draftniks there are a few known players left. Jeremiah profiled several over at SBNation.com/soccer, while one of our readers filled out a couple more. With the shrinking of the SuperDraft to two rounds, but the expansion of the league to 19 teams, don't think of players taken today as Supplemental Draft picks. Instead think of them as picks number 39 and up, particularly when comparing them to past drafts. So while Mike Fucito was picked in the 4th round (46) of the SuperDraft, this year he would be the 1st round, 7th pick.

Consider this your live thread. We'll have updates on Sounders activity as it happens. The draft starts at 11AM, but the Montreal Impact did the right thing and already announced they will be picking some Canadian.
