MLS operates under the de-jure Single Entity ownership structure as opposed de-facto (NHL/NBA/MLB/NFL) team ownership. The league itself negotiates with & signs players along with revenues however a few years ago they altered it somewhat whereby the Owner's will get first pick of players who theyve' developed through their Academy Systems.... AEG at one time owned 6 clubs in the league. Believe only 2 (Seattle & Toronto) made any money last year.
