When Can the Crew Clinch Playoff Birth?

August 23, 2009

The Crew have probably already clinched a playoff birth with 8 games remaining. It is in no way official, but the last team in the playoffs has averaged 1.3 points per game over the season for the last 6 seasons. That is 39 points in a 30 game season; just as many as the Crew have now.

Sports Club Stats website agrees, noting that if the Crew beats New York next Sunday, then the Crew’s playoff odds rise to 100%. That still won’t be “MLS Official”.

Can the Crew Clinch With a Win?

For the official clinching, it took until the 25th game last year to clinch a playoff spot last year. The same game in the schedule would be the September 20th game at Chicago. I will try running some numbers after this weeks game to try and judge how close the Crew are to punching their 2nd consecutive ticket to the MLS Playoffs.
