Major League Soccer unveiled the offseason calendar for the 2014-15 offseason on Wednesday, including dates of the MLS Expansion, Waiver and Re-entry drafts, as well as the MLS Combine and SuperDraft.
Like past offseasons which featured an Expansion Draft, this winter will feature a half-day trade window on Dec. 8, shortly before 2015 newcomers New York City FC and Orlando City make their selections on Dec. 10. The lone event with a date still undetermined is the dispersal draft for Chivas USA’s players.
