Following Monday morning's decision by the Supreme Court of the United States to strike down a 1992 federal law prohibiting sports betting, Major League Soccer issued the following statement:

“Although Major League Soccer is supportive of today’s Supreme Court decision, we also believe that it is critical that state legislatures and other regulatory bodies work closely with the professional sports leagues in the United States to develop a regulatory framework to protect the integrity of each of our respective sports.  We look forward to being a part of that process.”
