  1. Head-to-head winning percentage between tied teams
  2. Conference winning percentage
  3. Head-to-head goal differential

The above order will determine 4th place in the West Conference and 5th place in the East Conference.

Once it is determined who is properly slotted in each conference, the league uses the overall tiebreakers to determine who earns the wildcard spot:

Overall Tiebreakers:

  1. Head-to-head winning percentage between tied teams
  2. If the fifth place team in the East Conference and the fourth place team in the West Conference are tied in record and have the same head-to-head winning percentage against each other, the fourth place team in the West Conference shall prevail in the tiebreaker between the two teams.
  3. Winning percentage against common opponents played an equal number of times
  4. Head to head goal differential (NOTE: in case of three or more teams being tied, all teams must have played each other in order to apply this tiebreaker)
  5. Strength of victory (Combined Win% of all teams defeated; teams defeated multiple times will count the number of times defeated)
  6. Strength of schedule (Combined Win% of all teams competed against; teams competed against multiple times will count the number of times competed against)
  7. Leaguewide goal differential
  8. Goals For
  9. Goals Against
  10. Coin toss.

Note: Strength of victory and Strength of schedule factors into the team’s final record, not the record at the time the teams played.
