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

New, 1 comment

The latest rankings capture the NASL and MLS Playoffs and wrap up the 2014 season.

The final installment for 2014 of the Top 100 Clubs in the United States and Canada sees a multitude of changes, starting at the top.

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

The LA Galaxy - fresh off of their MLS Cup victory - are the new number one team in our poll. And while the New England Revolution had a great run, it was still not enough to dethrone the Seattle Sounders as the number two team. The Revs wound up third, rising three spots to take third place from the Portland Timbers, who wind up in fourth place. And rounding out the top five was FC Dallas, who remained in the fifth spot. Unsurprisingly, the late Chivas USA wound up the lowest ranked MLS team, sitting in 24th place.

The highest ranked non-MLS team was still USL PRO club Orlando City, who are set to enter MLS in 2015. By the looks of things, they would be fifteenth out of the twenty MLS clubs (although with their lineup I'd expect them to start climbing very quickly). The highest ranked NASL club was the Soccer Bowl Champion San Antonio Scorpions, who sit just ahead of Woosnam Cup winners Minnesota United FC. At 39th, the Chicago Fire have the highest ranked reserve team, and at 41st, the Michigan Bucks are the highest ranked USL PDL Team. and all the way at the bottom of the pile is the Pittsburgh Riverhounds II PDL squad. If there's any solace, it's that they're only two points behind the Midland / Odessa Sockers.
