Edge New England reports:

The efforts are aimed at reinforcing the league’s policies against discrimination. They include expanded training for players, a centralized complaint system and posting a code of conduct prohibiting discrimination in home and visitor locker rooms.

Schneiderman has said that discrimination will not be tolerated in any major league sport.

The new agreement was confirmed by MLS spokesman Dan Courtemanche.
