Top 100 Soccer Clubs in the United States and Canada - October 2014 Rankings

New, 3 comments

The latest rankings are completed through October 26th - the end of MLS regular season.

With the MLS Regular Season in the bag, it's time to reassess the top 100 clubs in the United States and Canada.

(For last month's rankings, see this article. For the methodology associated with these rankings, see this article.)

The top two teams stay the same as last month, with the Seattle Sounders and LA Galaxy maintaining an ever slimming (albeit still rather large) lead. The Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake switched spots, moving to third and fourth respectively, and the fifth spot is still held by FC Dallas. The biggest positive gain on the month belongs to USL PDL's Austin Aztex, who jump seven spots to number 44. On the flip side, NASL's Ottawa Fury and Atlanta Silverbacks both fell seven spots to number 34 and 37 respectively.

The highest non-MLS team is still Orlando City (who won't be non-MLS much longer) at number fifteen, up one spot from last month. Minnesota United FC jumped up three spots to become the highest rated NASL squad at seventeen, although they just eked out rival New York Cosmos by a meager three points. Chivas USA was the lowest ranked MLS club at number 24, although they did improve their (final) standing by five places.
