Competition Structure

The USL Academy League Finals will take place November 17th through 20th in Tampa, FL. The Finals will feature a Playoff Bracket, consisting of the top teams from each of the full-time USL Academy League Divisions, as well as a Showcase Bracket for teams that qualify based on the number of games played throughout the season. The Playoff Bracket will feature 3 days of group-play, with the USL Academy League Championship taking place on Sunday, pitting the top two teams in the Playoff Bracket against each other. The Showcase Brackets will feature group-play across all four days, allowing teams to compete against clubs that ranked similarly in the USL Academy League standings and from outside of their respective territories, to encourage quality competition and unique opponents.
