“They will have a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) just like MLS. And this protects the players,” Alvarado declared.

What is CBA? According to the MLS, this agreement is divided into two main clauses:

1- Players 24 years of age or older who have at least four years of MLS service at the end of their contracts will be eligible to become Free Agents within MLS. This gives players opportunities to negotiate and transfer to different MLS clubs.

2- Players will receive 100% of their compensation in 2021 including salaries and bonuses.

Without a doubt, it is about the great benefits of respecting professional soccer players in the United States Second Division, who will receive the same benefits as those who play in the MLS. Good news for our citizens.
