Stage One[edit]

The Stage 1 Draft of the Re-Entry Process took place on Wednesday, December 8, at 2 p.m. ET via teleconference. Each club could either select a player from the eligible player list, or pass. Once a team passed, it could no longer participate in that stage of the Re-Entry Process. Stage 1 continued until all 18 clubs have passed on the available players. The only selections in Stage 1 were Joseph Ngwenya (selected by D.C. United) and Aaron Hohlbein (selected by Columbus Crew).[5]

Clubs must exercise the option for, or extend a Bona Fide Offer to, players selected in Stage 1. Players that were out of contract may either accept or reject the Bona Fide Offer. Should a player reject the offer, the drafting club will hold the right of first refusal for that player in MLS. Players with option years left on their contract will automatically be added to the drafting club’s roster. A Bona Fide Offer must include a first year salary at least equal to 2010 annual base salary and, for players age 30 with 8 years or more of MLS experience, at least equal to 5% greater than their 2010 annual base salary. Option years (1+1) must be included with salaries increasing by at least 5% each year.[6]

Any player selected in Stage 1 will remain on the drafting Club’s 2011 budget at the option price or Bona Fide Offer price until April 1, 2011. Clubs and players may not mutually renegotiate that price to a lower number until April 1, 2011.

Clubs may not select their own players in Stage 1. Players will have the opportunity to negotiate contracts and sign with their previous clubs after Stage 1 is complete through 2 p.m. ET on December 13. Jovan Kirovski was the only player to withdraw from re-entry consideration after Stage 1. Kirovski negotiated a new deal with his current club, the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Once a team passed, they could no longer participate in that stage of the Re-Entry Process. The stage continued until all 18 clubs passed on the available players.

In Stage 2, clubs could select from players that were under contract and those not under contract. If a player is not under contract, the drafting club was required to make a genuine offer to the player within seven days. In the event that an agreement could not be reached between the drafting club and an out-of-contract player, the drafting club held the right of first refusal for that player in MLS. Clubs could select their own players in Stage 2 only after all other clubs have declined to select those players.
