Toronto FC trades international slot to FC Dallas for US$225,000 in allocation money

Toronto FC has traded an international roster spot to FC Dallas for the remainder of the 2021 season in exchange for US$225,000 in general allocation money.

The acquisition means Dallas now has 10 international roster spots this season.

In 2021, Major League Soccer has a total of 216 international roster slots divided among its 27 clubs. The roster slots are tradable, with no limit on the number of international slots a team can have.

Allocation money is money available to a club in addition to its salary budget. It can be used to “buy down” a player’s salary budget charge, sign a player or off-set player acquisition costs, among other things.
