Using data from the 2017 Major League Soccer Season, this thesis investigates the relationship between salaries, individual player performance, nationality and previous career trajectory for player in the MLS. Through analysis of 6 model specifications, it is found that previous career trajectory, performance and nationality are all significant factors in salary determination. Further, it is concluded that the results of the model show that MLS franchises are in general allocating salaries efficiently relative to performance.
