MLS players union agrees to salary cuts and proposed tournament in Orlando. Next step is approval by team owners.

The Major League Soccer Players Association voted to approve economic concessions for this season, including across-the-board salary cuts, while also agreeing to play in a proposed summer tournament in Orlando, Fla.

The proposal, which the union made public Sunday night, now will be sent to back to the league for approval by team owners.

“While a difficult vote in incredibly challenging times, it was taken collectively to ensure that players can return to competition as soon as they are safely able to do so,” the MLSPA said in a statement.

MLS gave teams the go-ahead Thursday to begin small voluntary group training sessions outdoors.
