NEW YORK – Major League Soccer Thursday will conduct what it termed waivers following the completion of the college soccer season.
Due to the unique circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, which extended the college soccer season into the spring, MLS created an additional opportunity for standout players to be drafted by MLS teams following the close of the college season.
Three players will be made available for selection in the waivers:
Andrew Thomas* (Stanford University, Watford FC Academy) and seniors Spencer Glass (Indiana University, Chicago Fire FC Academy) and Jacob Montes (Georgetown University, Portland Timbers Academy).
After all teams have played at least three regular season games, the waiver order is determined by points per game in the current standings, with the team posting the lowest points per game at the time of waivers selecting first. The waiver process will conclude Monday, May 24.
