All statistics correct as of September 25, 2016.

On August 6, 2015, the league announced that the season would consist of 30 games rather than 28 games played from 2013–2015.[2] This was the first increase in the number of games since the league went from 24 games per season in 2012 to 28 games in 2013.

The league expanded from 24 to 29 teams in 2016.[3] Six franchises were officially announced by the league: Swope Park Rangers, Orlando City B,[4] Rio Grande Valley FC,[5] FC Cincinnati,[6] Bethlehem Steel FC,[7] and San Antonio FC.[8] The Austin Aztex were on hiatus for the 2016 season, due to stadium availability issues, but planned to return in 2017 pending construction of a new, soccer-specific stadium.[9]
