Aggregated MLS Power Rankings

Updated on Monday Sep. 10

Our MLS Power Rankings are calculated by aggregating computer rankings from around the web and determining each team’s average ranking. Our own opinions and biases are checked at the door. We simply work with what other sites have put out.

Power Rankings

Our MLS Power Rankings table is straightforward. Each team’s ranking reflects an averaging of rankings from across the three sites that we pull from. Up or down movement versus two weeks previous is provided for each team. The HI/LO column shows each team’s best and worst ranking of the week across the four sites we pull from.
