MLS union counters league plan to resume play in Orlando, report says

Major League Soccer players have approved a plan to resume play in Orlando, asking MLS to agree to significant changes to its initial proposal, according to The Athletic.

The MLS Players Association submitted the proposal to the league’s owners Friday after receiving enough votes from players, The Athletic reported. The league will now review the players’ proposal and decide whether to accept it or counter.

The players previously had reportedly sent more than 100 questions to the league for review, with many speaking out against being isolated at ESPN Wide World of Sports away from their spouses and young children for months.
