Major League Soccer (MLS) has announced its 2017 Generation Adidas class including the first Generation Adidas Canada signings. Amongst them is SAAC and ANB Futbol star Adonijah Reid. With this contract, Reid will be entered into the 2017 MLS SuperDraft on Jan. 13.
For those that are unaware of what a Generation adidas signing means, see this paragraph from MLS’ official press release: “Generation adidas is a joint program between MLS and adidas that is dedicated to developing exceptional domestic talent in the U.S. and Canada in a professional environment. Each year, a handful of top domestic collegiate underclassmen and youth national team players are signed by the league and placed in the SuperDraft. Generation adidas players do not count against an MLS team’s salary budget.”
On behalf of everyone involved in SAAC, we wish Adonijah the best of luck on his next journey with the MLS. For the full press release via MLS, click here.
