The Canadian international Mark-Anthony Kaye was elected to the board of the Major League Soccer Players Association.

The 26-year-old Los Angeles FC midfielder was elected for three years along with Jalil Anibaba (Nashville SC) and Victor Ulloa (Inter Miami CF). The Board of Directors acts as the decision-making and decision-making body of the Players Association, with its members serving as Chief Officers of the MLSPA.

“The leadership and hard work of our board members past and present have made the MLSPA what it is today,” said MLSPA Managing Director Bob Foose in a statement. “I would like to congratulate and thank our newest board members and those returning for their dedication to serving their fellow players and continuing to expand and improve the MLSPA.”

Foose thanked outgoing board members Jeff Larentowicz and Luis Robles.

Other current Executive Committee members include Scott Caldwell (New England Revolution), Ethan Finlay (Minnesota United), Clint Irwin (Colorado Rapids), Eric Miller (Nashville) and Patrick Mullins (Toronto FC).

The MLS and MLSPA are currently at odds over the league’s decision to trigger a force majeure clause in the collective agreement in order to resume negotiations on the CBA that were signed in January 2019.

The league has said it lost nearly $ 1 billion last season due to the global pandemic.
