After the brief Fall Season in which both Eastern Conference and Western Conference teams played each team within their conference once, the standings looked like this:

EASTERN CONFERENCE
Chattanooga FC 3-0-1 = 9 points
Michigan Stars FC 2-2-0 = 8 points
NY Cosmos 1-2-1 = 5 points
Detroit City FC 1-2-1 = 5 points
New Amsterdam FC 0-0-4 = 0 points

WESTERN CONFERENCE
Oakland Roots 1-1-0 = 4 points
Cal United Strikers FC 0-2-0 = 2 points
LA Force 0-1-1 = 1 point

For the NISA Fall Tournament, the teams were placed into two groups based on the results above, with each team within each group to play each other once.

GROUP A
Oakland Roots
Michigan Stars
Detroit City FC
New Amsterdam FC

GROUP B
Chattanooga FC
Cal United Strikers FC
New York Cosmos
Los Angeles Force

The tournament was set in a bubble environment, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the teams staying at a hotel, with one floor for each team.  The schedule was set, and the matches began on September 21, 2020 at historic Keyworth Stadium in Hamtramck, MI.

A few former MLS players saw action in this tournament.
