"Going forward, we are going to have a real relationship with the league as opposed to being combative at times, and that's crucial for any league to do well. We have been extremely unified and united throughout this process. It's been a very productive few weeks. We are all mainly excited to play soccer this year and proud of what we accomplished. This is not a one-day celebration; this is the start of many good things to come for many years for our players and our league."
