The 2002 Major League Soccer SuperDraft was held on February 10, 2002 in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

One month earlier, MLS had contracted two clubs: Tampa Bay Mutiny and Miami Fusion. In conjunction with the contraction, the league conducted both an Allocation Draft and a Dispersal Draft in which the top 2002 SuperDraft picks of Tampa Bay and Miami, as well as players from those clubs, were made available to remaining MLS clubs.
