Re-Entry List

The Re-Entry Draft, Stage 1 begins on Thursday, Nov. 17 at 1 pm ET. Similar to the End-of-Year Waivers process, the Re-Entry Draft is conducted in the reverse order of the final 2022 season standings, keeping in mind postseason performance and any trades impacting selection order.

During the Re-Entry Draft, MLS clubs can select players who are at least 22 years old and have a minimum of one year of MLS service who are out of contract and did not receive a Bona Fide Offer or whose contract options were not exercised by their clubs.

*Note: The Re-Entry List is subject to change since players can opt-out.

End-of-Year Waiver List

On Thursday, Nov. 17 (5 p.m. ET), the End-of-Year Waivers process gives the clubs that finished at the bottom of the 2022 standings the first opportunities to select players who are out of contract at the end of the year, whose options are not exercised, who are not subject to first right of refusal, and who are not eligible for Free Agency or Re-Entry Draft.

Beginning in reverse order, and taking into account postseason performance, D.C. United will select first. The 2022 MLS Cup champions Los Angeles Football Club will have the 28th pick, and expansion club St. Louis CITY SC will have the 29th selection to end each round.
