New ECNL Regional Leagues postseason structure announced for 2024

The ECNL announced the ECNL Boys and Girls Regional League postseason structure for the 2023-24 season, with four ECNL Regional League Playoff Events leading to the 2024 ECNL Regional League Finals.

The four ECNL Regional League Playoff Events will be held in four different regions of the country, geographically set to manage travel for qualifying teams out of surrounding ECNL Regional Leagues. Each ECNL Regional League Playoff event will include top performing teams from that region, creating higher-visibility recruitment opportunities for local college programs. The four ECNL Regional League Playoff events as well as their locations and dates 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 the U13-U17 age groups, 80 boys teams and 80 girls teams will compete at each event looking to qualify for the ECNL Regional League Finals. Each age group will consist of 16 teams divided into four groups of four teams each for 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. The U13-U17 semifinal winners (two teams at each age group) will advance to the ECNL Regional League Finals in Virginia in July.?

At the U18/19 age group, eight boys teams and eight girls teams will compete at each event. 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 Regional League Champion at each of the four events.

The ECNL Regional League Finals will include eight teams at each age group, from U13-U17, and 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 Champions at each age group.
