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.
