The National Hockey League’s players, coach, and general manager met with executives from the National Basketball Association (NBA) and Major League Soccer (MLS) at a meeting Tuesday in Los Angeles.
Sources tell Sports Business Daily that the meeting was aimed at discussing how the league can create a unified front against the proposed U.S. border wall between the U.K. and Canada, and how the players, the players’ union, and players and coaches of the leagues’ clubs can come together to support the border wall in the months to come.
The meeting was held in Los, Los Angeles, and New York.
The players have been in a stalemate with the league over how to negotiate their salary and contracts over the past several months, with some players claiming they would be unable to pay their players’ salary at all if the border were to be built, and others claiming they had to agree to the border fence and the new tax.
The league is also concerned about how much money is being spent on the border to help pay for the border barrier.
The league’s negotiating team met with officials from the NBA, the NHL Players Association, Major League Baseball, Major Leaguers Players Association (MLBPA), and the U:P.
Sources told Sports Business that the players were concerned about the tax and border wall and how it would affect the players and their salaries.
The border wall is expected to cost $2.6 billion to $3.4 billion, according to the U, but the league and other stakeholders are also worried about the wall’s impact on their finances and the economic impact of the wall itself, which has already created shortages of goods, food, and medical supplies in the U., and is expected in the coming months to have a major impact on the global economy.
The union representing players and players’ representatives is also opposed to the wall, which is the first major construction project of its kind in the United States, and has called it a “disaster.”
