NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber says Chivas USA might not play in 2015 and perhaps longer, a decision that won’t be made until a new owner takes over the team.

Speaking Thursday after the launch of the league’s new logo, Garber said he expects an agreement to acquire the team by the end of the season and “once we get an ownership group in place, we’ll sit down them.”

Chivas USA formed in 2004, and MLS announced in February it had assumed operation of the team from Jorge Vergara and Angelica Fuentes.

Garber also said the league had fined Los Angeles Galaxy coach Bruce Arena $20,000 for criticizing the MLS in comments to The Washington Post over the uncompleted deal to acquire Anderlecht midfielder Sacha Kljestan.
