Another arbitration season is upon us.

A total of 40 players filed for arbitration ahead of the July 5 filing deadline.

Once a hearing is held, the neutral arbitrator leading the hearing has 48 hours to issue their decision. Players and their clubs can continue to negotiate up until an official ruling is made. While the arbitrator determines the player’s salary, it’s the team that decides whether the contract will be for one or two years — the exception here is for players in their final RFA year, who are only entitled to a one-year term.

This year’s hearings will be held in Toronto from July 20 to Aug. 4. Here’s the full schedule, which we’ll update as cases are settled, heard, and ruled upon:


Chase De Leo
