Considerably, the 2024 MLS SuperDraft was the 25th edition of the MLS SuperDraft which was organised as sports draft to select amateur, usually collegiate, soccer players that are not affiliated with an MLS club or college soccer players that had their Homegrown player rights relinquished by their parent MLS club.

Reportedly, the draft was held on Dec 19, 2023 marking the second year in a row. Despite of this that it held in 2023, the draft will retain and do the branding for 2024.
