Top Ten Major League Soccer Teams


The Top Ten

1 Los Angeles

:) I agree with you

Galaxy are definitely the best MLS team.

All the good players retired. Seattle should be number 1.

Galaxy has the best players

2 Seattle

Better than LA

Best Expansion Team Ever
Great Fanbase
Unprecedented Success
Ridiculous Depth
shall I say more?

They got Martin's, Dempsy, Alonso, Evans, Gonzalez and they have teamwork so that's what makes them the best

Seattle was the most talented team in the league even before signing Clint Dempsey. Dempsey just seals the deal for anyone who may have been unsure.

Without Becham for Galaxy, there is a very good chance Seattle will be

They are a very good team and they have an extremely good American soccer player Clint Dempsey and martins is an amazing striker and Dempsey is my most favorite soccer player

Seattle is the best because they have the best soccer players in the world

4 New York

The new york red bulls have very good players that perform at a level compatible with some teams in Europe. Many MLS teams that do good one season tend to choke the next season, but NY always play well and they are always at or near the top of the league table. They lost 6-2 to Barcelona in 2008, but the fact that they got 2 goals on a team like Barca shows how good they are (and Barca scoring 6 goals show that they didn't go easy) and NY have beaten Chelsea in 2015.

No one knows what they are talking about on this site. Half of the players mentioned have long since retired. New York is a great team without major stars that other teams such as the Galaxy have. As a NYRB fan I think they are the best though I am biased.

I'm from New york and they are the best they have great players like Theiery Henry.

They have got one of England's greatest players of all time! Frank Lampard!

8 Portland

The best fan base, timbers army, they have remarkable players like valeri, blanco, asprilla, and much more. They won the 2015 Audi cup and they might win the 2018

Great teamwork & communication towards one another. Good uniforms, & skillful goalkeepers. Diego Valero is their top goal scorer for the team, & they have very skilled & good attackers. Very funny & nice to eachother also. What can you not love about them?

Best fanbase and they have really cool players. They are super nice too.

The greatest fanbase in USA soccer

9 Kansas City

People hate on KC for everything. Whether it's the chiefs royals or sporting. It doesn't matter how good we are we will never get the recognition we deserve because we aren't a "big market." We are the heart of America and people just look at us as flyover country.

Look at the records, look at the stats, it is a joke Sporting isn't on this list.

What is wrong with you guys it should be at least 3 or 1 it won the cup there amazing and I'm not just saying this because I'm from Kansas city

Wow this should be #1 -5

10 New York City FC New York City FC

Villa and pirlo are the 2 best players in the mls 🀠- 😜

The Contenders

11 Orlando City S.C.

My home team

Orlando City is awesome because they have the 2007 world player of the year (Kaka).Also because they are beating Kansas City without Kaka

Let’s go Orlando

Best Eastern confederation soccer team so far! They keep getting better and better. And today, they beat Portland Timbers. WAY TO GO ORLANDO CITY!

12 Salt Lake

There the best

Olay! Olay! Olay! Olay! Real! Salt! Lake! This team set the all time record for best home streak. They are the funnest to watch by far. Way better than LA Galaxy! Enough said!

I grew up in salt lake and I rely like soccer and my favorite team is Real

When talking about the best "TEAM" Salt Lake is definitely number 1! They have a terrific coach in Jason Kreis, a terrific goal keeper in Nick Rimando, and great team chemistry.

13 Los Angeles F.C.

Best team in the mls

Why are they on this list? They're not even an MLS team yet!

14 Vancouver

Whitecaps r awesome they scored 5 goals in one game the 5 goals they scored only took 4 minutes

Vancouver is the best they r so good this season we destroyed every team this season

They're a good team. And I rate the footballer darren mattocks.

Best team in North America despite the fastest away from the league center

15 Seattle Sounders Seattle Sounders
16 Montreal Impact Montreal Impact The Montreal Impact is a Canadian professional soccer team based in Montreal, Quebec. The Impact competes as a member of the Eastern Conference in Major League Soccer.

Montreal isn't the best team but it clearly deserves a spot in the top 5. All you haters in the comments get out.

I think Montreal is a strong team now that they got drogba they should at least be second place

Montreal sucks,

Let take a poll, how long do you think before montreal looses this team, like those whom have gone in the past.

What disgrace low attendance at the world juniors hockey/

I don't like the team, but I like the logo.

24 Dallas

FC Dallas finishes in the top every year over the last few years. They have the least goals against so far this season. They've played a couple of games less than every other team and still have the most points in the conference. Only undefeated team so far. What else needs to be said?

#1 (highest points this year)
