(AP) — Commissioner Don Garber says the Major League Soccer season will begin on April 17, two weeks later than originally announced because of extended labor negotiations. The league will set a new date for teams to open preseason training camps in the near future. The season schedule will also be announced soon. The league faces a congested competition calendar because of the delays caused by the labor talks. The league’s 27 teams will play a 34-game regular season.
