Allocation ranking[edit]

New England is in the #5 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.[16]

International roster spots[edit]

New England has 8 MLS International Roster Slots for use in the 2013 season. Each club in Major League Soccer is allocated 8 international roster spots and no New England trades have been reported.
