2021/22 NPL Postseason Pathways
CHARLESTON, S.C. (Nov. 18, 2021) – With US Club Soccer’s National Premier Leagues (NPL) season in full swing, the league has officially announced the dates and locations for the 2022 NPL Finals and NPL Boys Playoffs next summer. Once again, the Boys and Girls NPL Finals will be held at DICK’S Sporting Goods Park, July 7-11, 2022, in Commerce City, Colorado.
This year, the NPL Boys East Playoffs and NPL Boys West Playoffs, for U-13 through U-17 age brackets, will take place on June 24-28, 2022. The EastPlayoffs will be located at Truist Sports Park in Bermuda Run, North Carolina, while the West Playoffs will take place at DICK’S Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado.
The 2022 NPL Girls postseason structure remains the same as years past, with qualifying teams from the U-13 through U-18/19 age brackets participating in a single stage post season event, the NPL Girls Finals, where qualifiers from member NPLs throughout the country will compete for the national title.
Additionally, the 2022 Boys NPL postseason will have a similar structure as last season, which will include two-stages for U-14 through U-17 age brackets of the NPL Boys East and West Playoffs in late June followed by the NPL Boys Finals in mid-July. The U-13 and U-18/19 boys age brackets will have a single stage post season. Same as last season, the U-13 East and West finalists will play at each respective playoff site. Unlike last year, the U-18/19 boys direct finals pathway will be hosted the same weekend as the NPL Finals, July 7-11, in Commerce City, Colorado.
