It has been a long journey, but today, Inter Miami will take part in the 2019 MLS Expansion Draft where they will have the 1st pick. This is a very simple process. In order for Inter Miami to build a team, they will need to grab some players off of other team’s rosters. Every other MLS team was able to protect their best players, so no real stars will be available today, however, plenty of quality depth can be had.
If you want to watch the draft unfold, it begins at 5:30p and will be streamed at www.MLSSoccer.com.
Here are the rules:
-There are five rounds in which both Inter Miami and Nashville SC can pick a player, totaling five players for each team.
-Only one unprotected player per team can be selected. For example, if the first pick is an Atlanta United player, then no more players from that club can be selected for the remainder of the draft.
-Five teams are exempt from this year's draft because they had players taken by FC Cincinnati in last season's expansion draft. The exempt teams are FC Dallas, D.C. United, Houston Dynamo, New York Red Bulls and Vancouver Whitecaps.
Go Inter Miami!
