Home » AMSA Rules » 1.0 Competitions and Divisions » 1.4 Standings And Champions


The standings for each division shall include only those teams active in that division at the end of a Season. Standings shall be based on all games played in the division since the beginning of the season, subject to Rule 1.3-2 regarding promotion and relegation. The teams shall be ordered by the following measures:

  1. Total points (three points for a win, one point for a tie).
  2. Goal difference, that is, goals scored minus goals conceded.
  3. Number of wins.
  4. Goals scored.
  5. Coin toss.

Forfeits shall count as wins or losses with the team awarded the forfeit winning by 3 goals. In addition, should any team drop out or be suspended from further play, all games involving that team for the entire season shall be considered “non-counting” games whose results will not be counted in league standings. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a team has played all of its games in the first round before dropping out or being suspended, their results in the first round shall be counted in the standings.

As amended by the AMSA Executive Committee on February 1, 2022.
