Aggregate 2017 and 2018 table

As Toronto FC won MLS Cup 2017, at least one of the U.S. berths for the 2019 CONCACAF Champions League will be reallocated to the U.S.-based team with the best aggregate record over the 2017 and 2018 MLS regular seasons that has not yet qualified. An additional second and third berth will be allocated based on this method if a Canada-based team wins MLS Cup 2018, and/or a U.S.-based team qualifies for multiple CONCACAF Champions League berths (by winning a combination of MLS Cup 2018, 2017 U.S. Open Cup, and/or 2018 U.S. Open Cup).[5]

Note: Only U.S.-based teams are listed in this table.

SuperDraft

The MLS SuperDraft is an annual event, taking place in January of each year, in which the teams of Major League Soccer select players who have graduated from college or otherwise been signed by the league. The first two rounds of 2018 MLS SuperDraft were held on January 19 in Philadelphia. Rounds three and four of the 2018 SuperDraft were held via conference call on January 21. Los Angeles FC selected João Moutinho with the first overall pick.

Allocation ranking

The allocation ranking is the mechanism used to determine which MLS club has first priority to acquire a player who is in the MLS allocation list. The MLS allocation list contains select U.S. National Team players and players transferred outside of MLS garnering a transfer fee of at least $500,000. The allocations are ranked in reverse order of finish for the 2017 season, taking playoff performance into account.[60] As an expansion team, Los Angeles FC took the top spot.

Once the club uses its allocation ranking to acquire a player, it drops to the bottom of the list. A ranking can be traded provided that part of the compensation received in return is another club’s ranking. At all times each club is assigned one ranking. The rankings reset at the end of each MLS season.
