    Next years Coaches meeting/seminar (whatever they call it now) will be in Chicago from what I've heard.

    6. Chicago
    7. Chicago
    8. Washington/SkyBlue
    9. Seattle

    The 3 and 8 spots haven't been decided yet due to the conditions of the trade of the #1 spot in the dispersal draft.

    if SkyBlue folds, does Washington automatically get the #2 & #3 pick? And does the first round only have 7 picks?

    1. Chicago
    2. Washington
    3. Washington
    4. North Carolina
    5. Chicago
    6. Chicago
    7. Seattle

    Based on NWSL precedent, SBFC will still draft and then fold after the draft... :whistling:

    If they were to fold before the draft, then the logical thing would be to see if the condition is met, not just invalidate the condition. Does anybody know what the condition actually is? I can't find the details of the condition in any news reports of the trade. Usually, though, it's if the team makes the playoffs or some sort of performance based qualification, so I would guess it wasn't met.

    I'll be there as always, but I doubt I'll get to the women's draft. Since MLS and the NWSL swapped Thursday and Friday as draft days, I haven't made it to the NWSL draft as MLS has kept me working.

    I usually circulate through the draft tables a couple of times. I can also be found very early acting as a test subject on stage setting up blocking shots. I typically only shoot the first draft pick from the floor. My home for the last decade has been the coach and player shots backstage. As the number of bodies present declines in the second round, I do usually make a late second pass out into the draft room. But every year is different.

    Not the last two years. In LA in 2017 and Philly earlier this year the NWSL draft was on Thursday and MLS SuperDraft on Friday. Prior to 2017 the order was reversed.
