The lockout that kept MLS' regular refs from officiating the first two weeks of the 2014 season is over after the referee's union agreed to a new collective bargaining agreement.

After weeks of negotiations, and two weeks of replacement referees, Major League Soccer will welcome back its regular match officials this weekend after the referees' union agreed to a deal on a new collective bargaining agreement late Wednesday evening.

The Professional Soccer Referee's Association (PSRA) announced on Wednesday that the lockout that had kept regular refs from officiating the first two weeks of the 2014 MLS season has come to an end after another lengthy night of negotiations yielded a deal.
