Nashville SC sends spot in allocation order to LAFC
NASHVILLE (Feb. 26, 2020) – Nashville Soccer Club announced today the club has traded the No. 1 spot in Major League Soccer’s Allocation Ranking to LAFC in exchange for a combined amount of $350,000 in 2020 and 2021 General Allocation Money and LAFC’s natural Second Round pick in the 2022 MLS SuperDraft. Nashville SC moves now to the 24th spot in the 2020 Allocation Ranking.
The Allocation Process is the mechanism used to determine which MLS Club has first priority to acquire a player listed on the Allocation Ranking list. The list consists of select U.S. Men’s National Team players, elite youth U.S. National Team players and former MLS players returning to MLS after joining a non-MLS club for a transfer fee greater than $500,000.
Generally, the Allocation Ranking List will be updated once a year on the day after the conclusion of the MLS regular season. The Allocation Ranking list will only be edited during the year if a player is transferred out of the league or if a top youth national team player is added to the list.
Tickets to Nashville SC’s inaugural MLS match against Atlanta United FC, presented by Renasant Bank, are available through Season Ticket Memberships starting at just $425 ($25 per game) and through single game and group tickets.
