MLS SuperDraft is an annual event, taking place in January of each year, in which the teams of Major League Soccer select players who have graduated from college or otherwise been signed by the league. The SuperDraft was first instituted in 2000, as a combination of the MLS College Draft, in which players having graduated from college were selected, and the MLS Supplemental Draft, in which all other players were chosen.

MLS SuperDraft Logo 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012:
Feels, looks a bit generic? Probably because these logos express all the clichés of modern day sport identities: italic, strokes, gradient, bevels, and stadium silhouette… These aren’t terrible marks, but it was a good idea to change their look.
MLS SuperDraft Logo 2013, 2014:
The new identity (adopted in January 2013) is simpler and feels a bit more unique. I like the fact that they created a stylized S to emphasize that it’s a SUPER draft. Overall, I think it’s a stronger design that will help brand recognition. I’m not a huge fan, but I definitely feel that it’s a step in the right direction.
