Major League Soccer’s 20th anniversary season will kick off on time.
The domestic futbol circuit and Major League Soccer Players Union reached an agreement in principle Wednesday night on a new five-year pact that includes among other things, limited free agency, a first for the single-structure entity, and increased minimum salaries.
The agreement, which is expected to be formally ratified Thursday and detailed during a press conference, ensures that UniMas and Univision Deportes Network will become the first Spanish-language services to open up a major U.S. sports league’s season, when they simulcast the defending champion Los Angeles Galaxy hosting the Chicago Fire at 10 p.m. (ET).
