Top Ten Major League Soccer Teams

The Top Ten
1 LA Galaxy

It has to be that the Galaxy is the best. They are good all around. They have Keane at striker, who can do lots of things with the ball. Now, we have to say, teams like FC Bayern Munich or Real Madrid are most likely better. But in the MLS, by far, LA Galaxy is the best. That's why I say LA is the best at American MLS soccer.

2 Seattle Sounders Seattle Sounders FC is an American professional soccer club based in Seattle, Washington. The Sounders compete as a member of the Western Conference of Major League Soccer.

They got Martins, Dempsey, Alonso, Evans, Gonzalez, and they have teamwork. 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 Beckham for Galaxy, there is a very good chance Seattle will be champions.

They are a very good team, and they have an extremely good American soccer player, Clint Dempsey. Martins is an amazing striker, and Dempsey is my favorite soccer player. Seattle is the best because they have the best soccer players in the world.

3 New York Red Bulls The New York Red Bulls are an American professional soccer club based in Harrison, New Jersey. The Red Bulls compete as a member of the Eastern Conference of Major League Soccer. The club was established in October 1994 and began play in the league's inaugural season in 1996 as the New York/New Jersey... read more

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 well one season tend to choke the next season, but NY always plays 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 two goals on a team like Barca shows how good they are (and Barca scoring six goals shows that they didn't go easy). NY has 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.

4 Toronto FC Toronto Football Club, commonly referred to as Toronto FC, is a Canadian professional soccer team based in Toronto, Ontario. The team competes in Major League Soccer as a member of the Eastern Conference. The team plays its home matches at BMO Field, located at Exhibition Place on Toronto's shoreline... read more

In the 2017 season, the team created history and broke many records. They were also the first MLS team to win the treble. The most consistent MLS team in recent times.

Bradley, Sebastian Giovinco, and Altidore are very good at soccer. Giovinco plays for the Italy national soccer team, and Bradley plays for the U.S. national team, the same as Altidore.

Jermaine Defoe and Bradley are going to bring home the title!

5 Sporting Kansas City A Major League Soccer team, Sporting Kansas City is headquartered in Kansas City, Kansas. They have claimed multiple MLS Cup titles and host their matches at Children's Mercy Park. Their colors consist of sporting blue and dark indigo.

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.

Winning the 2013 MLS Cup, Sporting Kansas City managed to place two members of their team onto the World Cup American team (Zusi and Besler). Sporting KC is actively involved with its fans and has come a long way since they were "The Wizards". Should I also mention that Overland Park, Kansas, is the soccer capital of the United States?

6 Atlanta United FC Established in 2014, this MLS team is based in Atlanta, Georgia. Atlanta United FC quickly achieved success by winning the MLS Cup in 2018. The team has a strong fan base and plays in red, black, and gold kits.

Atlanta is clearly the best team to be in the MLS. They went very far in their first season, won their second, and went to the Eastern Conference finals where they sadly lost.

Won the MLS Cup our second season. The only problem now is that Frank de Boer WILL NOT drop the 3-4-3.

In 2017 they'll be the best team, or at least better than Orlando City.

7 Portland Timbers The Portland Timbers are an American professional soccer club based in Portland, Oregon. The Timbers compete in Major League Soccer as a member club of the league's Western Conference.

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

Amazing fanbase and talent. I personally feel like they're underrated, but not on this list. Great ranking!

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 in 2018.

8 Real Salt Lake Real Salt Lake is an American professional soccer franchise that competes as a member club of Major League Soccer Western Conference. RSL began play in 2005 as an expansion team of the league.

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

Come on, with young talents like Joao Plata and vets like Beckerman, Morales, and Saborio, you have to put them on top. Oh yeah, and Nick Rimando - no biggie. The battle hymns have begun, folks.

Kyle Beckerman is very good, and he plays for the U.S. national soccer team. They have one of the best goalies in the MLS, Nick Rimando.

9 D.C. United
10 Columbus Crew Columbus Crew Soccer Club is an American professional soccer club based in Columbus, Ohio. The Crew competes in Major League Soccer as a member club of the league's Eastern Conference and began play in 1996 as one of the ten charter clubs of the league.
The Contenders
11 FC Dallas FC Dallas is an American professional soccer club based in the Dallas suburb of Frisco, Texas. The club competes as a member of Major League Soccer, the top league in the United States and Canada. The franchise began play in 1996 as a charter club of the league.

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?

12 Philadelphia Union The Philadelphia Union is an American professional soccer team based in Chester, Pennsylvania. The Union competes in Major League Soccer as a member club of the league's Eastern Conference.
13 Orlando City SC An MLS team based in Orlando, Florida, Orlando City SC was founded in 2013. The team has focused on grassroots development and has a passionate following. Their team colors are purple and gold.

Orlando should be top five. It's a great team that has only been in this league for less than ten years. It's probably one of the best expansion teams.

Besides team success (MLS cups), Orlando has a great fan base, great attendance, the third or fourth largest social media following in MLS, and they acquired one of soccer's legendary stars, Kaka! OCSC deserves a ring for its city.

Orlando has been doing well with their couple of wins. They could be going to the playoffs, but we don't know.

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

14 Houston Dynamo Houston Dynamo are an American professional soccer club based in Houston, Texas. The franchise competes in Major League Soccer, as a member of the Western Conference. The Dynamo had first played their home games at Robertson Stadium on the University of Houston campus until 2011.

Won championships in their first two years. They've never had a high-paid superstar player. Always playoff contenders even if they have a bad season. Great coach and awesome players over the years. Forever orange!

15 Vancouver Whitecaps A professional soccer team based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Vancouver Whitecaps are part of Major League Soccer (MLS). Founded in 2009, the team has become a cornerstone in the Canadian soccer landscape. Their colors are navy blue and white.

Vancouver Whitecaps is a leader in young talent. Alphonso Davies was subbed in at around the 80th minute because Place, a 14-year-old, showed great talent. In 4 to 10 years, I could see Whitecaps being the best team of all time.

They also have the one and only Great Dane - David Ousted.

They're a good team, and I rate the footballer Darren Mattocks.

Their goalie, David Ousted, is awesome!

16 San Jose Earthquakes An MLS soccer team based in San Jose, California, the San Jose Earthquakes were founded in 1994. They have won multiple MLS Cups and are a staple of soccer in the Western United States. The team's primary colors are blue and black.

They are very collaborative. This year, they have 6 all-star players.

They have a very good soccer player, Chris Wondolowski. Chris Wondolowski plays for the U.S. national soccer team.

17 New England Revolution The New England Revolution is an American professional soccer club based in the Greater Boston area that competes in Major League Soccer, in the Eastern Conference of the league. It is one of the ten charter clubs of MLS, having competed in the league since its inaugural season.

WOW! How is this not 1st? How come D.C. United isn't even on this list? They are more successful than L.A.

18 Colorado Rapids The Colorado Rapids are an American professional men's soccer team, based in the Denver suburb of Commerce City, Colorado.

Colorado has gotten so much better over the past few years. I need to see this ranked higher.

Every single time I see a result with Colorado and FC Dallas, I always see Colorado win.

19 New York City FC A Major League Soccer (MLS) team based in New York City, New York City FC was established in 2013 as an expansion team. They have quickly become competitive and attract significant crowds. The team's colors include navy blue, white, and orange.
20 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.

Winning the league. They have not lost yet and have earned every victory.

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

21 Chicago Fire A Major League Soccer franchise, the Chicago Fire is based in Chicago, Illinois. They have secured a single MLS Cup title and play their home matches at Soldier Field. Their team colors are red and blue.
22 Minnesota United FC

Hardy Nordic fans. New stadium soon! Go Loons!

Minnesota is great, especially now they have Blah Blah on their team.

23 Chivas USA
24 Los Angeles FC
25 FC Cincinnati
