As most American soccer fans know, the Collective Bargaining Agreement between MLS and the Players’ Union is set to expire at the end of this year.  Lately, we have been getting a number of e-mails asking for some detailed discussion of the CBA from a business/legal perspective.  We are starting to look into the issue and will have some detailed posts coming up.  In the meantime, take a look here, for a copy of the CBA.  For a recent update on the status of negotiations, look here.  For some thoughts from MatchFit USA on the issue, click here.

We’ve been working on part one of our story about converting soccer fans to MLS fans by speaking with an array of folks about what they want to see.  Check back tomorrow for part one.
