TRADE | Crew SC acquires TAM, GAM & international roster spots from New England

COLUMBUS — Columbus Crew SC today announced that it has acquired $200,000 in Targeted Allocation Money for the 2018 MLS season, $200,000 in General Allocation Money for the 2018 MLS season and an international roster spot for the 2017 and the 2018 MLS season from the New England Revolution. Crew SC used its No. 1 spot in Major League Soccer’s Allocation Ranking Order to select and subsequently trade forward Krisztian Nemeth to the Revolution. The transaction was executed prior to the close of Major League Soccer’s secondary transfer window which ran from July 10 through August 9.

Per Major League Soccer, the Allocation Ranking Order refers to the order in which MLS clubs are able to acquire a player listed on the Allocation Ranking. The list consists of select U.S. Men’s National Team players, elite youth U.S. National Team players or former MLS players returning to MLS after joining a non-MLS club for a transfer fee of more than $500,000. The Allocation Ranking Order is determined by taking the reverse order of the clubs’ standings at the end of each MLS Season, taking playoff performance into account, with new expansion clubs at the top of the order. Once the club uses its allocation ranking to acquire a player, it moves to the bottom of the list. The rankings reset at the end of each MLS League season.

Crew SC returns home to MAPFRE Stadium to host Bastian Schweinsteiger and the Chicago Fire on August 12 for a 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff
