Template:ImportReviewTemplate:League-stub Template:Infobox football league Major League Soccer (MLS) is a professional soccer league representing the sport's highest level in both the United States and Canada, with headquarters in New York City. MLS constitutes one of the major professional sports leagues of the United States and Canada. Sanctioned by the United States Soccer Federation (U.S. Soccer), the league is composed of 19 teams—16 in the U.S. and 3 in Canada. Seasons run from March to December, with each team playing 34 games in the regular season with the winner awarded the Supporters' Shield. Ten teams compete in the postseason MLS Cup Playoffs, culminating in the championship game, the MLS Cup.

Major League Soccer was founded in 1993 as part of the United States' successful bid to host the 1994 FIFA World Cup. The first season took place in 1996 beginning with ten teams. Instead of operating as an association of independently owned teams, MLS is a single entity where each team is owned and controlled by the league's investors. The league's closed membership makes it one of the world's few soccer leagues not using promotion and relegation.
