Corona, Badji among players eligible for 2020 Expansion Draft

By

Austin FC has already made five acquisitions this week ahead of its first MLS season and now the expansion club will prepare for Tuesday’s 2020 MLS Expansion Draft.

16 MLS clubs released their lists of players eligible for the draft, which will see the 2020 newcomers have the chance to pick five players apiece. Teams can only lose one player each during the draft, which has seen some top names listed for selection.

Joe Corona, Dominique Badji, Marc Rzatkowski, Kamal Miller, and Jukka Raitala are just five of the numerous names left unprotected for the draft. 10 teams are exempt from this year’s draft due to the fact they saw a player taken by either Inter Miami or Nashville SC in 2019.

**Several free agent players are also eligible should Austin FC solidify a deal with them. Those players include Dom Dwyer, Wil Trapp, Warren Creavalle and CJ Sapong.

The remaining 16 teams were allowed to protect from selection up to 12 players from their respective rosters, while Homegrown players under the age of 25 and Generation Adidas players who have yet to graduate from the program are automatically protected.

Teams that also see a player taken will receive $50,000 in General Allocation Money. In addition, Austin FC will receive an additional sum of General Allocation Money as compensation for 10 exempt teams, protected Homegrown players, and the twelve protected players per team in the MLS Expansion Draft.

The Expansion Draft will take place on Nov. 19th at 6 p.m., streamed on MLSsoccer.com
