New, 1 comment

For a while it really seemed like MLS owners were going to lockout the players, but the two sides were able to reach an agreement on a CBA and the New England Revolution will hit the field in 2021.

New England Revolution fans will be excited to learn about the latest news regarding collective bargaining agreement negotiations between players and owners. The 2021 season is officially on.

The MLSPA voted on a new CBA Friday night with it tentatively being approved by the players. The news was first reported by Jeremy Filosa and later confirmed by Jeff Carlisle of ESPN.

One of the key factors of the CBA is the fact that it runs until 2027 which is a two-year extension from the previous CBA.

This is a crucial step in the 2021 season starting on time. Players are supposed to report to training camp on February 22nd with the regular season beginning on April 3rd.

So Revolution fans don't have to worry about not getting to watch their favorite players in 2021. There will be a season and New England will be looking to reach the MLS Cup Finals.

The beginning of April can’t come soon enough.
