MLS to Implement the Fan Conduct Class for the 2015 Season League wide

by Dr. Ari Novick February 25, 2015

Following suit with the NFL, Major League Soccer has now implemented the Fan Conduct Class league-wide for all U.S. clubs.  The class must be taken by fans who are ejected for "threshold offenses".  

Threshold offenses are:


i.      Acts of violence to include, but not limited to, assaults and or batteries

ii.      Racial, sexist, or xenophobic language or behavior

iii.      Field intrusions

iv.      Provoking and/or overtly inciting behavior resulting in a stadium ban

v.      Possession or use of unauthorized pyrotechnic/smoke devices at an event


The MLS is committed to creating the safest possible enviroment for fans and wants the game day experience to be an exceptional one for all fans.  We look forward to our continued work and success helping the MLS with this mission.
