MLS to renegotiate players’ collective agreement again due to coronavirus


The Covid-19 pandemic has not finished having economic consequences on the world of football and the MLS is no exception since it will trigger a force majeure clause and renegotiate the employment contracts of the players.

The losses have been valued at nearly $ 1 billion (around € 815 million), not least due to the lack of ticket revenue, the suspension of last season from mid-March to July or the temporary move. in the United States of the three Canadian clubs _ the Montreal Impact, Toronto FC and the Vancouver Whitecaps, to finish their season.

The players, who in February agreed to a 5% cut in their annual salaries when the threat of a lockout loomed afterwards, will therefore return to the negotiating table less than a year after the establishment of a new collective agreement for five years.
