Nashville SC lost its coin-flip with fellow expansion club Inter Miami CF today, but the Boys in Gold still can be happy about the results of the day.
In the next phases of building their inaugural Major League Soccer roster, they know they have the following outcomes:
MLS Expansion Priority Draft Results
No.1 pick in 2019 MLS Expansion Draft: Inter Miami CF No. 1, Nashville SC No. 2
No.1 position in Allocation Ranking Order: Nashville SC No. 1, Inter Miami CF No. 2
No.1 pick in 2020 MLS SuperDraft presented by adidas: Inter Miami CF No. 1, Nashville SC No. 2
Penultimate position in MLS Re-Entry and End-of-Year Waiver Order: Nashville SC No. 25, Inter Miami CF No. 26
Penultimate position in Discovery Player Ranking: Inter Miami CF No. 25, Nashville SC No. 26
The first allocation order position is particularly important for NSC, which gets first crack at US Internationals or high-value former MLS players.
The expansion draft is the next phase in the roster build, and takes place Nov. 19. In that draft, Miami and Nashville will alternate picking unprotected players from current MLS rosters.
