“Our recent history with each of these venues has produced a great experience for all attendees, and we’re looking forward to once again working with some of the very best soccer facilities in the country,” said Simon Collins, National League Commissioner. “The new format for the national events will create an amazing atmosphere and excitement all around the fields, and these venues will provide a great setting for our talented players to make memories as they continue their soccer journeys.”
All participating teams will play at up to two of the national events. Teams begin at their respective playoff event and — should they secure advancement — move on to one of the National League P.R.O. events.
The Conference Playoffs will feature the top teams from the 13 National League Conferences, all of whom earn their place in the playoffs through their performance in conference play during the 2022-23 season. Teams competing at the Conference Playoffs will all have the opportunity to advance to the next stage — National League P.R.O.
The Elite 64 Playoffs will feature every team from the National League’s club-based national platform — Elite 64. Seeded by prior regular season finish, each Elite 64 team will play in knockout style competition at one of the two playoff events to determine which sides advance to the next stage — National League P.R.O.
The National League P.R.O. events will see teams that advance from the Conference Playoffs and Elite 64 Playoffs combine to compete for berths directly to the USYS National Championships. Each qualifying team competes at one of the two National League P.R.O. events — in Florida (February) or California (May).
