Drafting Process

So, how does this rough draft pan out? Those who are familiar with the NBA or NFL draft process will easily understand how things will work. The candidates will take a series of preliminary tests, based on which the presidents will have to make assessments and create rankings, from which they will select the top candidates in a random sequence.

  • The order will be determined randomly, although it will be adjusted after the first round.
  • Each president will have 20 seconds to make his selection. Goalkeepers will not be selected in a separate round, they will also be selected during the regular drafting process.
  • There will be a total of 10 rounds, with 52 participants on standby in case anyone is forced to withdraw due to injury or illness.

Where to Watch the Kings League Draft

Each of the Presidents’ Twitch feeds will be streaming the draft. The Kings League also has its own dedicated channel where you can see all the action as it happens.
