Regional Playoff Structure

The bulk of the regional playoffs will take place this weekend to determine who will be traveling the #RoadToRoundRock. Teams from all six conferences will have a chance to advance to the National Final Four Tournament.

Central & Midwest Conferences

The Midwest Playoffs feature the top two seeds in the Midwest North division, the top seed in the Midwest South division, and the top seed in the Central division.

Midwest United FC will host Corktown AFC in the first semifinal in what will be the third match of the season between these two Midwest North rivals. Midwest United won each of the first two games by the score of 4-2. The second semifinal is equally as intriguing.
