The Major League Player Combine was held each year leading up to the SuperDraft. The combine was discontinued in 2020. The participants were selected by a committee of MLS coaches and NCAA Division I coaches from every conference. After a day of fitness testing, the players formed teams and played a series of matches under the eyes of MLS coaches and staff.
