All registered players are eligible to be drafted, and Major League Footy First Division sides will draft in order based on the results of the 2016-’17 Inaugural Season. The Clearwater Kangas hold the #1 overall pick for the 2017 Draft.
New and development (‘Elite Series’) clubs will not participate in the draft, as players are assigned on a territorial basis for new clubs. The Florida Redbacks side also does not participate in the draft, as the club is comprised of a protected ‘historical’ alumni list.
Sides may trade draft selections and future selections, but cannot trade selections for active players.
Captains will make their team’s selections in a ‘snake’ draft format, and the 2017 Major League Footy Winter Player Draft will be live on Facebook at 7 PM, Friday, November 10, 2017. The draft will conclude when all registered players have been selected.
