FC Cincinnati’s 2020 season is on its way back.
Major League Soccer and its players association on Wednesday came to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement that will run through 2025. With the affirmative vote, the two groups also arrived at a plan to continue the postponed 2020 season, according to a news release from the players association.
Negotiations between the two sides hit a bump in the road earlier this week and led to many players across the league — including all of FC Cincinnati’s players — skipping voluntary workouts on Monday.
MLS has not publicly announced specific details about how the 2020 season will re-start. The plan is no secret, though.
The Associated Press reported Monday that the two sides were working on a deal to finish the season with a Florida tournament that would resemble the format of the World Cup.
“We hope our return to the field will allow fans a momentary release and a semblance of normalcy,” the players association wrote.
