Major League Soccer’s SuperDraft 2023 will be held tomorrow (5 p.m.).
On Monday, the MLS announced eight distinguished college players in the 2023 Generation adidas class, and three of those players have significant New England connections.
Generation adidas is a joint program between MLS and adidas that sees a handful of top collegiate underclassmen and youth national team players signed by MLS to Generation adidas contracts and made available in the SuperDraft. In order to provide Generation adidas players with the best professional environment, Generation adidas player salaries are not charged against an MLS team's annual salary budget, providing an added incentive for that club to develop the player. Eventually, these GA players graduate to senior player contracts and their salaries are charged against a team's budget.
