NWSL Announces Protected And Unprotected Players

The National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) today announced the official list of protected and unprotected players ahead of the 2015 Expansion Draft on Monday, Nov. 2. The Orlando Pride will become the tenth club to join the NWSL when they begin play in 2016.

Orlando will be able to select up to ten (10) players in the Expansion Draft, though no club can lose more than two players. The results of the Expansion Draft will be announced via social media starting at 12 p.m. (ET).

Each current NWSL club has had the opportunity to protect nine (playoff teams) or ten (non-playoff teams) players from their 2015 roster. Each team may protect up to two (2) U.S. allocated players. Any additional U.S. allocated players on a team’s roster must be left unprotected. The Pride will be allowed to select no more than two (2) U.S. allocated players.

A complete list of the Expansion Draft Procedures can be found on NWSLsoccer.com.
