Report: MLS bans electronic communication in locker rooms

With the groundbreaking report of widespread match-fixing in European soccer released this morning, Major League Soccer is taking a precautionary step to ensure such a thing doesn't happen in the United States. According to a tweet from Steven Goff at the Washington Post, the U.S.' top-tier soccer league will ban electronic communication within team locker rooms for one hour before games.

Up to this point MLS has had no league-wide policy on pregame communication, with guidelines on use of social media left up to the individual teams.

This morning's match-fixing report implicated a Singapore crime syndicate in determining results in World Cup Qualifying games and for matches in the UEFA Champions League. The report stated that it found 680 matches with suspicious results, but did not state specific players, teams, or organizations as the investigation is ongoing.
