How rankings are determined

Club Rankings

Clubs will be ranked in order of the number of games the Club has won during the Regular Season. The Club with the greatest number of wins will be awarded the highest position in the PLL standings.

Tie Breaker Rules

In the event that two or more Clubs have an equal number of wins, the following tie breaker rules, analyzed in the order listed below, will be used to break the tie:

Regular Season Scoring Differential

Calculated as the total number of points from goals scored by the Club in the Regular Season minus the total number of points from goals conceded by the Club in the Regular Season. The Club with the largest differential wins the tie breaker.

Head-to-Head Record

Compare the number of wins and losses against each Club (or Clubs) involved in the tie. The Club with the best record wins the tie breaker.

Head-to-Head Scoring Differential

Calculated as the total number of points from goals scored by the Club when playing the other Club (or Clubs) involved in the tie minus the total number of points from goals conceded by the Club when playing the other Club (or Clubs) involved in the tie. The Club with the largest differential wins the tie breaker.

Total Points from Goals Scored

Calculated as the total number of points from goals scored by the Club in the Regular Season. The Club with the most points from goals wins the tie breaker.

Coin Toss

The PLL Front Office will assign the Clubs "heads" or "tails" on a coin. The coin will be tossed into the air and allowed to come to rest on the ground. The Club that was assigned the side of the coin that ends face-up will win the tie breaker.
