After 21 seasons of history, which franchises have the best record of winning matches? We rank all of the MLS clubs from last to first.
There have been 21 years of MLS history. Some clubs that were once dominant have since struggled, while newer franchises have found success quickly. However, which teams have the best win percentage in the history of the league?
The rankings are based on the total number of wins a program has had both in the regular season and the playoffs, divided by the total number of matches across both. Thus, regardless if there are three years of history or 21, it comes down to how often they were able to pick up the three points or advance in the playoffs.
A few of these will surely be a surprise. However, I think we can all guess who is starting off the rankings in last place.
#23 – Chivas USA
Matches Played: 328
After starting in 2004, the second Los Angeles club would only end up lasting ten seasons. They didn’t qualify for the playoffs six of those years, including five straight before folding.
The highlight of their run came in 2007 when they won the Western Conference with a record of 15-7-8 in the regular season. Once 2010 arrived, the club never managed more than nine wins. Even though the franchise eventually folded, a number of notable players passed through the team, including Juan Pablo Garcia, Brad Guzan, Juan Agudelo, Sacha Kljestan, Jesse Marsch, and Alejandro Moreno.
