Miscellany[edit]

Allocation ranking[edit]

San Jose is in the #9 position in the MLS Allocation Ranking. The allocation ranking is the mechanism used to determine which MLS club has first priority to acquire a U.S. National Team player who signs with MLS after playing abroad, or a former MLS player who returns to the league after having gone to a club abroad for a transfer fee. A ranking can be traded, provided that part of the compensation received in return is another club's ranking.[31]

International roster spots[edit]

San Jose has six international roster spots. Each club in Major League Soccer is allocated 8 international roster spots, which can be traded. On 14 July 2011, San Jose traded a slot to Toronto FC for use through the 2012 season, at which time the slot reverts to San Jose.[11]

Previously, the club dealt one spot to Toronto FC on 14 July 2008 which was to remain with Toronto through the 2013 season then revert to San Jose.[32] The club also dealt one spot to New York on 2 March 2009 but press reports did not indicate if or when this roster spots would revert to San Jose.[33] One of these two traded slots did revert to San Jose prior to the 2011 season.

The club also acquired one spot from Houston on 14 August 2009[34] but that spot reverted to the Dynamo after the 2010 season.[35]

There is no limit on the number of international slots on each club's roster. The remaining roster slots must belong to domestic players. For clubs based in the United States, a domestic player is either a U.S. citizen, a permanent resident (green card holder) or the holder of other special status (e.g., refugee or asylum status).[31]

Future draft pick trades[edit]

Future picks acquired: 2012 SuperDraft Round 2 pick acquired from Colorado Rapids.
Future picks traded: None.

MLS rights to other players[edit]

San Jose maintains the MLS rights to Clarence Goodson after he declined a contract offer by the league and signed overseas with no transfer fee received. San Jose acquired Goodson's rights by drafting him in the 2007 MLS Expansion Draft.
