The Major Arena Soccer League announced today that the Florida Tropics are officially suspending operations and will not participate in the 2023-24 season. As a result of the suspension all current Tropics’ player contracts will be voided. The players will be considered free agents and may proceed with contract negotiations with any interested teams. 

In order to create a fair market, the league is giving a one week window for teams to negotiate a potential contract with any Florida Tropics player who became a free agent with the recent league decision. 

Teams will be able to sign and register any Florida Tropics free agent starting Wednesday, July 19th at 12pm EST. Players are free to speak to all teams during this window to negotiate terms. 

The MASL will continue working with the Tropics ownership group to resume play in 2024-25 or sell the team to new operating owners.
