USA Flag Ranking Points


Ranking Points are USA Flag’s reward and ranking system provided to teams throughout the year through participation in various USA Flag sanctioned leagues and tournaments.


Ranking Points will be used for determining seeding into USA Flag hosted and sanctioned tournaments. At our National and World Championship tournaments, Ranking Points will now be used to determine the draft order for pool play seeding. Points will accumulate throughout the year and will determine our rankings for the top teams across each division from all over the world!


Ranking Points will be earned by participating in various USA Flag hosted and sanctioned leagues and tournaments. You will earn a set amount of Participation Points simply for playing that scales with your division (PRO, Elite, Competitive, Recreational, Novice, Amateur), bonus Champions Points for teams placing in the top 10 of each division, along with Early Bird Points at select events for teams registering early. See the chart below for a full breakdown of how many points may be earned at each event. Youth divisions will be awarded PRO points unless age group is broken down into divisions of PRO, Comp or Rec.

Participation Points are awarded just for playing in each League or Tournament, per the chart below.

Champions Points are awarded to teams who place in the top 10 of each division at USA Flag hosted or sanctioned events, per the chart below.

EXAMPLE: If you participated in our World Championships this past January, in the 4v4 Competitive division and placed 4th, you would earn 400 participation points for entering, plus an additional 350 champions points for placing 4th, for a total of 750 points.


Q) What events will Ranking Points be used at for seeding?

A) The 2024 season started January 1st, so all USA Flag hosted or sanctioned events will use Ranking Points for seeding through our Tampa World Championship tournament next January 2025.

Q) When will Ranking Points reset?

A) Ranking Points will reset mid January, 2025, following the Tampa World Championships. The Ranking Points teams receive from participating in this event will start the new set of points for 2025.

Q) Can Ranking Points be transferred to another team, format or division?

A) No, teams cannot use Ranking Points for seeding into another format, or for another team. Only exception will be for a team moving between PRO, Competitive or other skill division levels.
