Colorado Rapids acquire second round selection from Atlanta United FC

Colorado Rapids Soccer Club have acquired Atlanta United FC’s 2017 Natural 2nd Round SuperDraft selection in exchange for one international slot for the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

“We believe this trade provides good value for our club and one that will help us continue to execute our plan for roster development in the offseason,” said Tim Hinchey, Colorado Rapids President.

As Atlanta United FC are one of two 2017 MLS expansion teams, the second round selection acquired will be either the first or second pick of the second round (23rd or 24th overall) in the upcoming 2017 MLS SuperDraft.
