MLS and the MLS Players Association will continue to attempt to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement while working under the current agreement slated to expire on Friday and extended for
another week, through Feb. 7.
The drop-dead date for a new agreement is Feb. 29, the start of the 2020 regular season, so another extension is possible.
The joint statement
from MLS and the MLSPA: "Major League Soccer (MLS) and the Major League Soccer Players Association (MLSPA) today announced that they have agreed to extend the current collective
bargaining agreement (CBA) through February 7, 2020. The two groups have engaged in productive discussions and will continue to negotiate a new CBA."
