Q: Can I buy GSLs under a company name?

A: GSLs can only be purchased by individual persons and not entities, business or otherwise.

Q: Can I buy more than one GSL under a single name?

A: Yes, but it is recommended to assign a different individual's name for each GSL. Remember, GSLs expire when the holder becomes deceased.

Q: Can I transfer my GSL to another name?

A: GSLs are non-transferable. Once a GSL is purchased, the name of the holder cannot be changed at any time.

Q: Can I cancel a GSL order and/or request a refund?

A: GSLs are non-cancelable and non-refundable. Once a GSL is purchased, it cannot be canceled or refunded at any time.

Q: Will I receive an email confirmation upon purchase of a GSL?

A: No. The "thank you" page that is displayed after each GSL order serves as a confirmation. Also, your credit card will be charged within a few days of your order.

Q: What are the GSL materials holders receive after purchasing?

A: GSL holders will receive in the mail an official letter, the terms and conditions and license within 2-3 weeks of purchase.

Q: What happens to a GSL if the holder becomes deceased?

A: The GSL simply expires and cannot be passed on to another individual. A GSL lasts the lifetime of the individual holder.

Q: Are there any other fees to expect in addition to the one-time sign-up fee?

A: No, however, All-Star Game and MLS Cup tickets are not included in the GSL fee

Q: Does the GSL guarantee an exact seat and how can I be sure to sit next to family or friends that also own a GSL?

Q: Do I have to purchase tickets to the All-Star Game and MLS Cup if I own a GSL?

A: No. GSL holders have the option to purchase tickets during special pre-event windows.

Q: When and where can I purchase my ticket(s) for each event?

A: The special ticket purchase windows for GSL holders will take place approximately 35-days before each premier event. GSL holders will be notified via email of when the special purchasing windows will take place. The special windows will last 5-10 days.

Q: What types of seats are available to GSL holders?

A: MLS specifically will hold top quality seats (e.g. category 1 and 2 sections) for GSL holders until the pre-event window expires.

A: Yes, any individual person can be the holder of a GSL.

A: No. There is no age restriction for a GSL holder. The purchaser, however, must be 18-years of age or older.

Q: How do GSL holders update contact information for change of address, phone number, email, etc.?

A: For now, please email contact information updates to GSL@mlssoccer.com. It is each GSL holders responsibility to maintain updated information. In the not too distant future, GSL holders will be able to make changes on-line.

Q: Are GSLs applicable to any other events besides the annual All-Star Game and MLS Cup?

A: No, GSLs only apply to these two premier events. If this changes in any given year, holders will be notified.
