MLS Table by Points Per Game

Note: Points per game is currently used as a tie-breaker for simplicity. After that points per game. MLS uses head-to-head to split sides equal on points in the final table.

Qualification for the Play-offs

10 teams will qualify for the playoffs – the top 3 teams in each conference plus the remaining 4 teams, regardless of conference, that have the most points in the standings upon the completion of the 34-game regular season.

Team standings tie-breaking procedures

In the event that two teams finish the regular season with an equal number of points, the following system will be used to break the tie:

  1. The highest position shall be awarded to the team with the better win–loss record in current regular-season games against all other teams equal in points. (head-to-head competition)
  2. If the teams are still equal in the standings, the highest position shall be awarded to the team with the greater goal difference against all other teams during the regular season. (goal differential)
  3. If the teams are still equal in the standings, the highest position shall be awarded to the team scoring the greatest number of total goals against all other teams during the regular season. (total goals)
  4. If the teams are still equal in the standings, the procedures described in this section shall be applied only to games played on the road by each team against all other teams during the regular season. (road 1-3)
  5. If the teams are still equal in the standings, the procedures described in this section shall be applied only to games played at home by each team against all other teams during the regular season. (home 1-3)
  6. If the teams are still equal in the standings, the highest position shall be awarded to the team with the fewest team disciplinary points in the League Fair Play table during the regular season.
  7. If the teams are still equal in the standings, the highest position in the standings shall be determined by the toss of a coin.
  8. The first tiebreaker in a three-way tie is also head-to-head, but it is determined via points-per-game versus the other two teams. If two teams are tied in points-per-game head-to-head, the next tie breaker is goal difference.

NOTE: If two clubs remain tied after another club with the same number of points advances during any step, the tie breaker reverts to step 1 of the two-club format.
