Player Salary Information

The documents linked below contain salary information for all MLS players as of the date shown.  In the survey, all player salaries are broken down into two numbers.  The first is the player's current base salary.  The second is characterized as annual average guaranteed compensation.  The annual average guaranteed compensation number includes a player's base salary and all signing and guaranteed bonuses annualized over the term of the player's contract, including option years.  For example, if a player has a base salary of $50,000, has a two-year contract with two one-year options and received a $10,000 bonus when he signed, his average annual guaranteed compensation would be $52,500 (base salary plus signing bonus ($10,000), with the signing bonus divided by the number of years covered by the contract (4)). The average annual guaranteed compensation number also includes any annual marketing bonus to be received in the current year and any agent's fees annualized over the term of the contract. The average annual guaranteed compensation figure does not include performance bonuses because there is no guarantee that the player will hit those bonuses.

These figures include compensation from each player's contract with MLS.  They do not include any compensation from any contracts with individual teams or their affiliates.
