FC Dallas to get first pick in Chivas USA Dispersal Draft

Major League Soccer conducted a draw to determine the selection order for next Wednesday’s Chivas USA Dispersal Draft on Friday, with FC Dallas coming out first.

The envelope draw saw all 20 MLS sides involved – New York City FC and Orlando City included, as all non-playoff teams had two envelopes, whereas playoff sides had one.

Despite the advantage for non-playoff teams, four of the top five picks went to sides who made the playoffs, with FC Dallas coming out first.

The Dispersal Draft will see MLS clubs pick players from the recently disbanded Chivas USA squad, and everyone is available apart from star striker Erick ‘Cubo’ Torres as he is negotiating a contract with the league separately.

Goalkeeper Dan Kennedy is expected to be one of the first names drawn, while other notable names include Marky Delgado, Andrew John-Baptiste and Nigel Reo-Coker.

Draft picks for Wednesday’s draft cannot be traded, although the player selected could be once all teams have picked.

Chivas USA Dispersal Draft order:

  1. FC Dallas
  2. New York City FC
  3. Sporting Kansas City
  4. DC United
  5. New England Revolution
  6. Montreal Impact
