MLR Draft 2020: What you need to know
Major League Rugby (MLR) is looking forward to the 2021 season with its first annual MLR Draft. Here’s what you need to know before the event this weekend.
The 2020 Major League Rugby Draft will take place on Saturday, June 13th. The event will be streamed live on the MLR Facebook Page at 7:00 PM EST.
The MLR is the highest level of American rugby. The goal of the draft is to provide a pathway for college rugby players to transition to professional rugby. The draft also supports college rugby programs across the country, provides transparency, and creates parity among the competitive landscape of the MLR.
The draft will consist of two rounds. The order of team selections are based on the team’s record from the first 5 weeks of the 2020 MLR regular season. The 2021 league expansion teams, Dallas and Los Angeles will hold the first two picks of the draft.
Players that are entering the draft must meet eligibility requirements. You can view the eligibility requirements here.
The Utah Warriors has four picks in this year’s draft, the most of any MLR team. With around 400 players entering, the Warriors will have plenty of options to choose from. You can view MLR featured draft prospects by clicking here.
We look forward to seeing Warriors Nation on the draft’s live-stream this weekend!
