The team with the most points in the regular season was crowned league champion. Due to the NASL's unusual points system, this was not the team with the best won-loss percentage. The Kansas City Spurs posted a record of 10 wins, 2 losses, and 4 ties, for 110 points to claim the title, while the Atlanta Chiefs posted a superior record of 11 wins, 2 losses, and 3 ties, but for only 109 points.
(Standings were based on the following: 6 points for a win, 3 points for a tie, 0 points for a loss, 1 point for each goal scored up to three per game. W = Wins, L = Losses, T= Ties, GF = Goals For, GA = Goals Against, Pts= point system)
