New to the 2021 Season

2021 Player Contract Changes

Season-long contracts: These contracts have a minimum initial term of one season. They may include a unilateral team option to extend the term for one additional season. The maximum term of a season-long contract is three seasons, including any team option year.

30-day contracts: If a team has at least seven players signed to season-long contracts, a team may sign additional players to 30-day contracts. Upon expiration of a 30-day contract, a player becomes a free agent who may negotiate with other teams. Teams do not have the option to extend 30-day contracts unilaterally.

Update to Two-Way Players

First, there is no longer any limit to the number of players who may be designated as two-way players at any given time. Additionally, two-way players on teams with no academy team affiliate are now eligible to participate in Contenders competitions.
