The WPSL Elite League has announced it’s playoff schedule. The playoffs and championship will be run like that of a tournament, and all games will be played in Sahlen’s Stadium in Rochester New York.
The games are scheduled with a 5pm start time for the 2nd place regular season finisher versus the 3rd place regular season finisher on Wednesday July 25th. Then there will be an 8pm start time for the 1st place finisher versus the 4th place finisher, also on Wednesday July 25th. The Championship game will be held on Saturday July 28th at 1pm.
“We are very excited by the tough competition in the WPSL Elite,” said WPSL Commissioner Jerry Zanelli. “Watching two teams, Boston Breakers and Chicago Red Stars, open with undefeated streaks, only to be brought down by tough rivals, has been thrilling. No clear winner has emerged, and we look forward to more intense action over the rest of the season and an exciting playoff series.”
The New York Fury has clinched a playoff spot. They currently sit in fourth place in the standings with an 8-3-1 record and 25 points. They are just two points behind third place Chicago, with two games left in the regular season schedule.
