MFLS Fantasy League Rules: MFLS Team Rosters

Each MFLS team roster will, at all times, consist of 19 MLS players and a MLS coach. The 19 player squad includes 11 starters playing a 3-4-3 formation (i.e., 1 goalkeeper, 3 defenders 4 midfielders and 3 forwards) and 8 bench players.

Managers who donate to MFLS at the specified level (see Supporting MFLS) will have the ability to use a flexible roster formation. Specifically, they can field any formation that has 1 goalkeeper and at least 3 defenders, 3 midfielders and 1 forward, and at most 3 forwards. For example, a 3-5-2 formation is one of several formations these managers could choose from.

There are 4 restrictions on rosters:

  • Each MFLS team may have at most 8 foreigners (designated by an '*' following their name in the player lists).
    Note: MLS players' foreign status for MFLS is determined by a player's eligibility to compete for the US or Canadian National teams.
  • Each MFLS team may have at most 3 players from the same MLS team (excluding the coach).
  • MFLS teams may not have two of the same player on their roster.
  • The players in the starting lineup must be of the designated position (i.e., only players whose MFLS position is midfielder may occupy a midfield slot on your roster). MFLS positions are final for the purposes of MFLS, regardless if the player plays another position during the real game. Player/Coaches are treated as two separate persons for purposes of MFLS (e.g., you may have Coach Walter Zenga and/or Goalkeeper Walter Zenga and earn points for the particular position(s) he occupies on your roster).
