MLS announced on Friday the lists of players eligible for End-of-Year Waivers, Free Agency, and Stage 1 of the Re-Entry Process. In advance of these three postseason roster mechanisms, the transition from a rolling calendar to a single announcement date adds to the transparency of disclosing the contract status of all option-declined and out-of-contract players following Thursday’s option exercise deadline.

Re-Entry List


The Re-Entry Process, Stage 1 begins on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 3 pm ET. Similar to the End-of-Year Waivers process, the Re-Entry process is conducted in the same reverse order of the 2019 season finish, keeping in mind postseason performance.


During the Re-Entry process, MLS clubs can select from three types of eligible players:


  1. Option-declined players who are at least 23 years old with a minimum of three service years
  2. Out-of-contract players who are at least 25 years old with a minimum of four service years and whose clubs did not wish to re-sign at their previous salary
  3. Free Agents that chose to participate


The final postseason roster mechanism will be Stage 2 of the Re-Entry Process, which will be conducted on Tuesday, Dec. 3. The list of players eligible for Re-Entry, Stage 2 will be announced on Dec. 3 at 11 am ET.

Immediately following the End-of Year-Waivers process, Free Agency opens on Monday, Nov. 25 for players – who are at least age 28 with at least eight MLS service years and either option-declined or out-of-contract. Free Agents can negotiate a new contract with any MLS club, including their previous team, subject to certain restrictions. During a given year, clubs may acquire a maximum of two out-of-contract players via Free Agency. Free Agents may also participate in the Re-Entry Process.
