ECNL Regional League Playoffs set to begin across the country

The 2024 ECNL Regional League Playoffs get underway this week with the ECNL Regional League South Playoffs at Russell Creek Park in Plano, Texas (June 5-9).

In total, the 2024 ECNL Regional League Playoffs will consist of four events in four different regions of the country, geographically set to manage travel for qualifying teams out of surrounding ECNL Regional Leagues.

Over the next two weeks at these events, 640 teams from ECNL Regional Leagues across the countries from U13-U17 will compete to earn their spot in the ECNL Regional League Finals in Virginia this July.  At the same time, 65 teams from the U18/19 age group will compete for a final ECNL Regional League Championship.

Each ECNL Regional League Playoff event will include top performing teams from leagues in the region, creating high-visibility recruitment opportunities for local and regional college programs. The four ECNL Regional League Playoff events, dates and locations are listed below:

  • ECNL Regional League South Playoffs at Russell Creek Park in Plano, Texas (June 5-9)

  • ECNL Regional League East Playoffs at Bryan Park Soccer Complex presented by Truist in Browns Summit, North Carolina (June 12-16)

  • ECNL Regional League Central Playoffs at Worldwide Technology Soccer Park & Slyman Bros SLYSA Soccer Park in St. Louis, Missouri (June 12-16)

  • ECNL Regional League West Playoffs at Silverlakes Sports Park in Norco, California (June 12-16)

At each age group the 16 qualifying teams in each event are divided into four groups of four in the group stage. Every team will play three group stage games to determine the four group winners at each age group. The winners of each group will advance to the semifinals. From there, the U13-U17 semifinal winners (two teams at each age group from each event) will advance to the ECNL Regional League Finals in Virginia in July.

At the U18/19 age group, eight boys teams (*9 in the Boys South Playoffs) and eight girls teams will compete at each playoff. Teams will be divided into two groups of four and play three group stage games to determine the two group winners. The two group winners will then play one final game to determine the U18/19 ECNL Regional League Champion at each event.

In the ECNL Regional League Boys South Playoffs, teams will be divided into three groups of three, where the top team from each group and the best second place team will advance to play in a four team knockout to decide the champion.

The ECNL Regional League Finals for U13-U17  will take place in Richmond, Virginia, at Striker Park, concurrently with the ECNL Finals.  The ECNL Girls Regional League Finals will be played July 11-14, followed by the ECNL Boys Regional League Finals from July 16-19. Teams will compete in an eight team knockout to decide the ECNL Regional League National Champions at each age group.
