About Major League Soccer Players Association
The Players Association is a democratic organization run by and for players, and ultimate control over the PA rests with the players. The players on each team vote by secret ballot to elect a Player Representative, and those Player Representatives elect a seven-player Executive Board. The Executive Board governs the PA and makes all major decisions. The Executive Board also hires the PA’s Executive Director, who runs the day-to-day operations of the PA, and its General Counsel, who provides legal advice to the PA.
