Sky Blue FC will get the first overall selection in Tuesday’s National Women’s Soccer League dispersal draft of the Boston Breakers.
The team was awarded that pick as the league held a weighted draw Monday to determine the dispersal draft order.
The draft will begin at 4 p.m. Tuesday, and the league will utilize a snake method for the selection process. In other words, for the second round, the team at the bottom of the first-round list, in this case, the North Carolina Courage, will pick first, Orlando second, etc.
