BOSTON (AP) Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber says he is still hopeful the season will start on time, even as the professional soccer league and its players head into the last week of their offseason without a collective bargaining agreement.

"We had hoped that by now this would have been resolved," Garber said on Friday at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference.

"I'm hopeful. I believe, and I know I speak for our owners ... nobody's looking for a work stoppage. We are prepared for it, but we're all hopeful that we are able to bang through these issues."
