    USL-1 players make around 20-25k.

    USL-2 players make around 10-17k.

    And they aren't on FIFA because not enough people care about minor league US soccer.

    CCSUltra, really that much for USL2? I was in the impression it was lower for most of them. As in they are making $200 a game or something ($200*15=$3,000).

    I would like to add that some USL1 and 2 players make some extra money playing indoor soccer during the winter

    I believe brentgoulet was referencing players in USL1 and USL2, to seperate pro leagues in the USL.

    And these players that supplement their income by playing indoors, usually do so in the MISL.

    Correct, like that guy Bumbut, who plays normally for the Richmond Kickers in USL2, well he has been loaned to the Baltimore Blast for the indoor season

    But, don't ask me what amount of money he makes

    I have absolutely NO idea

    Go to USLsoccer.com and look at the player rosters, then go to the various indoor soccer leagues and look at their player rosters. Find the players listed in both places.

    I'd say USL 1 players make between 10-50k a season, with the very best making more than they'd earn in MLS.

    I'm not entirely sure about the latter. The main benefit to making $40k on an USL1 team and $40k on an MLS team is that the USL1 player making that amount is probably a starter whereas the $40k MLS player is just happy to travel to away games and dress for home games.

    Here in Montreal, the salary for our players is between 30k and 100k, but we are in the top paying club and contracts are for a period of 10 months, which is longer than most USL-1 clubs.

    Does any Division 2 team pay more in Canada/USA than Montreal?

    I wonder how many Impact players make 6 figures...?

    I would guess 2 or 3 players make 6 figure and they would be Jordan, Di Lorenzo and maybe Testo with his new contract. Grande, before being fired in the middle of last summer, was in among the best paid players.
