The MLS soccer league has improved and is currently a destination for professional soccer players worldwide.

But getting invited for these tryouts is the biggest hurdle young players face since most clubs have different ways of scouting players for their respective youth development teams.


MLS Next Tryouts and how to go about it in 2024


One of the ways to get an MLS Tryouts is to become a part of the MLS Superdraft or the MLS Supplemental Draft. Or, to get a chance, you should be invited to MLS Combine, a talent showcase that was last held a few years ago.


The level of the MLS over the years has been outstanding, and to further improve on the level of youth soccer development, the MLS Next League was created.


What age is MLS next? The MLS Next League runs through under-13, under-14, under-15, under-16, under-17 and under-19 age groups.


How to participate

The participants of the MLS Next are players from various MLS clubs and other soccer development teams from the United States and Canada.


To be eligible, you must be a part of these teams. Players scouted and admitted into the various Soccer Academies across MLS would also participate.

1. All Clubs and MLS NEXT Participants are required to comply with the MLS NEXT Rules.


2. PD reserves the right to decide how to enforce the MLS NEXT Rules at its sole and absolute discretion.
