Third place in the poll was given to San Diego Legion, the only departure from the point standings which has Legion tied with NOLA Gold. In this poll, voters placed Gold in fourth.

The final three positions are held by Utah Warriors, Houston Sabercats and Austin Elite Rugby, in that order. This also matches with the point standings.
