HOUSTON – The Houston Dynamo enter the 2020 MLS SuperDraft presented by adidas with four selections as Round 1 and Round 2 kick off at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 9. BBVA Stadium will host the Dynamo Draft Room as the club holds the eighth overall pick in the first round.
Round 1 will be streamed live by ESPN and Major League Soccer, and the Dynamo will be one of five clubs in the league featured during the live production. The stream will be available on ESPN+ and the ESPN app, as well as via ESPN’s Twitter, Facebook and YouTube pages. The stream will also be available on MLSsoccer.com.
“The MLS SuperDraft presented by adidas is an important opportunity for MLS clubs to acquire top talent from the collegiate game as well as promising youth internationals,” said Todd Durbin, MLS Executive Vice President, Competition & Player Relations. “The new format will enhance the experience for players and fans, while maintaining the traditional competitive aspects of the SuperDraft.”
The SuperDraft will be conducted in four rounds with 26 players selected in each round. To streamline the process, clubs now will be permitted three minutes, instead of four in previous years, to make their player selections, and there will be no intermission between rounds.
