Players Used Record 2007: Update #2
|Update #1-through July 5, 2007.|
The all time MLS record for most players used is 36, held by the 1996 Metrostars as we've already established. The average for every MLS team from 1996-2006 is 25 players. Counting the regular season only.
Toronto FC is edging ever closer to that mark, now at 31 with 11 games to go. Since I last posted on this, they've used two additional goalkeepers (David Monsalve and Kenny Stamatopoulos). On another note, they've now tied the record for using the most goalkeepers in a season. Two other teams have used five keepers:
Miami was also an expansion team.
Toronto last night had three players on the bench who have yet to see action: David Guzman, Cristian Nunez, and Nana Attakora-Gyan. In addition, they also yet to use Tyler Hemming and Stephen Lumley. Despite the injuries, it's likely going to take another trade or two for TFC to get this record.

RSL could become a contender, as they're planning to add three new SIs from Argentina shortly.
The Revs meanwhile would set a new mark for the fewest players if they stay at 18.
