Each club may either select a player from the eligible player list, or pass.  Once a team has passed, they may no longer participate in that stage of the Re-Entry Process.  Each stage will continue until all18 clubs have passed on the available players.

 

Clubs must exercise the option for, or extend a Bona Fide Offer to, players selected in Stage 1.  Players that were out of contract may either accept or reject the Bona Fide Offer. Should a player reject the offer, the drafting club will hold the right of first refusal for that player in MLS.  Players with option years left on their contract will automatically be added to the drafting club’s roster.

 

Any player selected in Stage 1 will remain on the drafting Club’s 2011 budget at the option price or Bona Fide Offer price until April 1st, 2011.  Clubs and players may not mutually renegotiate that price to a lower number until April 1st, 2011.

 

Clubs may not select their own players in Stage 1.  Players will have the opportunity to negotiate contracts and sign with their previous clubs after Stage 1 is complete, through 2p.m. ET on December 13th.

 

In Stage 2, clubs may select from players that are under contract and those not under contract.  If a player is not under contract, the drafting club will be required to make a genuine offer to the player within seven days.  In the event that an agreement cannot be reached between the drafting club and an out-of-contract player, the drafting club will hold the right of first refusal for that player in MLS.  Clubs may select their own players in Stage 2 only after all other clubs have declined to select those players.

 

If a player is not selected in either stage of the Re-Entry Process, that player will be available on a first come first serve basis to all clubs.
