The ECNL Boys National Playoffs draw was conducted Wednesday night, and nine teams from New England learned their postseason fate. The event is scheduled for July 3-9 in Greensboro, North Carolina.
NEFC earned the most representatives (four teams), while FSA FC was narrowly behind with three teams. Both Connecticut FC and FC Stars will have one team, while no Boston Bolts squads made it. ECNL Boys sides from New England qualified via their regular-season performance in the Northeast Conference, which is comprised of 19 clubs in a North-South Divisional setup.
This North Carolina-based event will serve as the National Finals for the U-13 and U-18/19 age groups, while the U-14 through U-17 age groups are participating in the Champions League Playoffs. Should U-14 through U-17 teams navigate this first stage, they’ll qualify for their National Finals from July 22-26 in St. Louis, Missouri.
