New five-year CBA reached, there will be no work stoppage

Major League Soccer commission Don Garber has announced a new five-year CBA has been successfully negotiated.
It was “literally signed within the last few minutes,” Garber said.
There will be a season. There will be a season opener.
Some changes to expect: a lot more contracts will be guaranteed (not all them, based on age and years of service), the salary cap has gone up and players will enter a re-entry draft at the end of the season if they are out of contract.
Feel free to rejoice in the comments, and I’ll update this post as information becomes available.
