Major League Soccer released their list of important dates for the upcoming 2015-16 offseason yesterday.
As usual, the month of December will be full of deadlines - releasing the list of players eligible for the Re-Entry Draft as well as (for the first time) a list of Free Agents. There will also be the Waiver Draft and both stages of the Re-Entry Draft before the end of the year.
2016 will also follow the normal protocol, with the Player Combine and the SuperDraft being held before the preseason officially starts on January 22. This year's SuperDraft will be held in Baltimore.
