Major League Soccer is a men’s professional soccer league in the USA. It was founded and established in 1993 and currently features 27 teams. Out of the 27 teams, 24 are from the USA and 3 teams are from Canada. MLS has popularized soccer in the USA and is gradually growing to become one of the top leagues in world football. The increasing popularity of the league means that the league attracts wealthy club owners and investors to the MLS.
The business model and ownership in MLS are different from other leagues. Instead of an association of individually owned clubs, MLS is a single body that centrally owns teams and player contracts.
MLS teams do not have owners in the traditional sense, instead, they have investor-operators that are shareholders in the league. The investor-operators act as the owners and control their respective teams.
MLS team owners include former soccer stars, Businessmen, industrialists and other sports athletes. This list features the richest club owners in MLS as of 2023.
