Major League Soccer Players Association approves ratified CBA

Some soccer is going to be played folks.

After a couple of rough days between the MLS owners and players, things appear to finally be pointing in a positive direction.

On Wednesday morning, the players voted via email to approve a ratified Collective Bargaining Agreement that will run through the 2025 season. Most importantly, the vote also finalized a plan to resume the 2020 season with a tournament in Orlando this summer.

This is certainly the positive news we all have been waiting on for some time here since the league suspended play back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. The details of the Orlando tournament haven’t been officially finalized yet but we can assume we’ll know more about them in the coming days as the teams are expected to get to Orlando towards the end of this month.

What do you make of this ratification? Are you happy that both sides were able to get this sorted out after a potential lockout was discussed earlier in the week? What do you make of the potential tournament in Orlando? Let us know below.
