In a frankly not-so-close competition, back-to-back finalist Keaton Parks managed to sneak past James Sands to take the prestigious "NYCFC Survivor Champion" award!!! We're all happy you recovered from the blood clots and are continuing on to do great things. Congrats Keaton, we love you! (Anyone got a video of Keaton's header tackle from a few years ago?)

In third place, Maxi Moralez. As he's still in the team this coming season, this won't be (hopefully) his last appearance in Survivor, giving him one more chance to snatch the trophy in the future.

* Some players tied last year, and as such the displacement will reflect based on the tie, but the players will show up on following rows. For example Santiago Rodriguez shows up on line 11, but he tied for 10th (four-way tie), still shows +6 and -6 even though it's technically from 11 to 4 - which should be 7.

2024 Off-season Biggest Winners: Matt Freese +28 (debut), Birk Risa +26 (debut), Andres Perea +24 (debut)
2024 Off-season Biggest Improvement: Thiago Martins +18, Andres Jasson +16, Tayvon Gray +12
2024 Off-season Biggest Losers: Sean Johnson -19, Gabriel Pereira -19, Thiago Andrade -18, Matias Pellegrini -17 (wooden spoon)


This year was particularly brutal on the biggest losers. Last year was -17, -12, -11, -9. A clear difference to so many players this year with -19 or -18 lol. Guess that's what happens when you leave / we miss the play-offs.

Until next off-season, it's been fun! Thanks all for playing :)
