Rachael Kriger’s Racing Louisville FC mock expansion draft

Dan Lauletta made his picks, so now it’s my turn.

The 2020 National Women’s Soccer League Expansion Draft — the first one in the league since 2016 — is happening on Thursday. This will be the first time Racing Louisville FC hears the words “you’re on the clock” before opening up their first season.

In his article, Dan Lauletta mapped out the rules. Here are some of the rules that Racing Louisville FC must follow:

  • Each team is allowed to protect up to 11 players, with only two being U.S. federation players.
  • Louisville can only pick two U.S. federation players, maximum, and only one U.S. federation player per team.
  • Chicago Red Stars have immunity from the Expansion Draft due to a trade at the wire.
  • Any team that loses a U.S. federation player will receive $75,000 for that player.
  • Louisville can receive up to $150,000 in allocation money. If the club does not choose any U.S. federation players, they receive the whole amount. If they choose to select one U.S. federation player, Louisville will receive $75,000 in allocation money. However, if Louisville does select two U.S. federation players, they will not receive any allocation money.

Just like Dan, I’m sure everyone will agree with my picks… Who am I kidding? No way! If you have thoughts and opinions, feel free to tweet me any agreements or disagreements, @RachaelKriger.
