The 2015 MLS SuperDraft was the sixteenth SuperDraft conducted by Major League Soccer. The SuperDraft is held each year in conjunction with the annual National Soccer Coaches Association of America convention. The 2015 convention was held January 14–18, 2015 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The first two rounds of the SuperDraft took place on January 15, 2015. Rounds three and four took place via conference call on January 20, 2015.

Format[edit]

The SuperDraft format has remained constant throughout its history and closely resembles that of the NFL Draft:

  1. Any expansion teams receive the first picks. In 2015, MLS added two expansion teams: New York City FC and Orlando City. As determined by a "Priority Draft" conducted on September 24, 2014, Orlando City had the first overall selection and New York City picked second.
  2. Non-playoff clubs receive the next picks in reverse order of prior season finish.
  3. Teams that make the MLS Cup Playoffs are then ordered by which round of the playoffs they were eliminated.
  4. The winners of the MLS Cup are given the last selection, and the losers the penultimate selection.

Contraction of Chivas USA[edit]

MLS contracted the Chivas USA franchise at the conclusion of the 2014 MLS season. On November 7, 2014, MLS announced that all draft picks held by teams in the 2015 SuperDraft after previous trades with Chivas USA would be honored, while the two picks still held by Chivas USA would be deleted.[ref 1] Had Chivas USA not been contracted these selections would have been:

  • Round 3, pick #48 - Chivas USA's natural selection.
  • Round 4, pick #69 - Chivas USA's natural selection.

Also, draft picks retained by Chivas USA for the 2016 MLS SuperDraft were deleted except for the team’s second-round pick which was previously traded to Columbus. That 2016 pick will be selection #11 in round two of the 2016 SuperDraft.[ref 1]
