MLS commissioner Don Garber has confirmed that the reserve division will return next year.
"The reserve league will be back in some form," Garber said at the playoff matchup between the Colorado Rapids and the Columbus Crew. "We are just working out the details. Next season."
When the MLS reserve league disbanded in 2008, it altered the depth of each club’s resources. Noting the change, commissioner Don Garber stated that the reserve league will be rebuilt.
