Homegrown Player Rule (Major League Soccer)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Homegrown Player Rule is a Major League Soccer program that allows MLS teams to sign local players from their own development academies directly to MLS first team rosters. Before the creation of the rule in 2008,[1] every player entering Major League Soccer would have to be assigned through one of the existing MLS player allocation processes, such as the MLS SuperDraft.

MLS roster rules allow a team to sign up to two players per year to contracts similar to Generation adidas contracts,[2] which do not count against the MLS salary budget and may earn a much higher salary than the league minimum. While only two of these contracts are available, there is no limit to the number of Home Grown Players a club may sign in a given year.[3]

To place a player on its homegrown player list, making him eligible to sign as a homegrown player, players must have resided in that club's home territory and participated in the club's youth development system for at least one year, as well as meeting other unspecified league requirements.[4]

If a player on a team's homegrown list goes to college, he remains eligible to sign as a homegrown player at any time; however, a team cannot place a player on the homegrown list who has already played college soccer or played for a youth national team.[5]

In 2014, Seattle's DeAndre Yedlin became the first MLS Homegrown player to compete in a World Cup.[6]
