The 2020 NWSL College Draft took place on Thursday, January 16, at 11 a.m. ET at the Baltimore Convention Center.
In order to be eligible for the 2020 NWSL College Draft, a player must:
• Be a player who will forego any remaining college eligibility or must have exhausted their eligibility during the 2019-2020 academic year, and
• Be at least 18-years-old during the College Protected Period (which ends with the End of Season Process for the 2020 season), and
• Register for the draft with the NWSL by the deadline at 4 pm ET on Wednesday, January 15, 2020.
Players who register but are not selected during the 2020 NWSL College Draft will qualify to be acquired as a Discovery Player during the 2020 season. Players who do not register will not be eligible to be on the roster of any NWSL team until the conclusion of the 2020 NWSL season. We encourage all players who might want any opportunity to play in the NWSL in 2020, to register.
