MLS is Ranked 42nd Best League in the World

18

According to the IFFHS, our new league, Major Legue Soccer, is the 42nd best league in the world placed right above Saudi Arabia and right below Tunisia. Of course, I honestly wouldn't take this ranking system as pure fact. You see, the primary metric used in the algorithms to create this list are based on how often teams from 'x' league win their continental championships. MLS, as many people know, traditionally underachieve in the CONCACAF Champions League thus giving us a lower position than leagues that we are absolutely better than such as Georgia, Algeria, Israel, Scotland, Ecquador, etc. Until MLS teams starting putting a large emphasis on continental championships we'll always be ranked fairly low.
