Decoding DC United Player Salaries

Decoding DC United Player Salaries

The Washington Based club DC United is one of the few clubs that have stayed in the MLS since the start of 1995. However, the club’s payroll is not any more than mediocre for an MLS team.

Player salaries in the MLS aren’t even close to the top leagues in Europe, but if you consider the quality of the teams in the league, the salaries aren’t too bad to be fair.

The average player salary in D.C. United is $219.400, and the yearly wage bill for all the players combined is $5,924,500. Which makes them the 3rd lowest paying club in the MLS.
