After the Tampa Bay Mutiny and Miami Fusion were contracted, Major League Soccer distributed their players to the rest of the league by means of an Allocation Draft, in which teams with excess allocations were allowed to select from their players. Players not selected in the Allocation Draft went into the 2002 MLS Dispersal Draft. The participants and selection order for the Allocation Draft were approved by the MLS Competition Committee on January 8, 2002. The Allocation Draft was held on January 11, 2002.[1]
