The 2012 MLS Supplemental Draft was a secondary draft that was held by Major League Soccer via conference call on January 17, 2012.[1] The draft was four rounds and all 19 MLS clubs participated.

Changes from 2011[edit]

  • As an expansion club, Montreal received the first pick in the Supplemental Draft.
  • Due to the league shortening the 2012 MLS SuperDraft from three rounds to two rounds, the Supplemental Draft was increased from three rounds to four rounds. Previously traded SuperDraft Round 3 picks became Supplemental Draft Round 1 picks.[2]

Selection Order[edit]

The official selection order was set by Major League Soccer on October 21, 2011:

  1. 2012 expansion team Montreal Impact had the first selection;
  2. The eight clubs which did not qualify for the playoffs received picks #2 through #9 (in reverse order of season points);
  3. The two clubs eliminated in the Wild Card round of playoffs received picks #10 and #11 (in reverse order of season points);
  4. The four clubs eliminated in the Conference Semifinals received picks #12 through #15 (in reverse order of season points);
  5. The two clubs eliminated in the Conference Finals received picks #16 and #17 (in reverse order of season points);
  6. The club which lost the 2011 MLS Cup received pick #18;
  7. The club which won the 2011 MLS Cup received pick #19.

This selection order held for all four rounds of the Supplemental Draft.
