League By-Laws Pertaining to Playoffs:

 

Playoffs: The Executive Committee will determine the number of teams from each division to make the playoffs. All games except the Semi-Final and Finals shall be played at the field of the higher seeded team. Semi-Final and Championship games will be played at a neutral site, if available, else fields of the higher seeded teams will be used. All games scheduled to be played on Sunday will only be played Saturday or Sunday. The higher seeded team will pick Saturday or Sunday and time. The game date and time must be in the league office prior to Friday at 6:00AM or both teams will forfeit and be out of post season play. All games scheduled to be played on Wednesday will only be played Wednesday or Thursday. The higher seeded team will pick Wednesday or Thursday and time. The game date and time must be in the league office prior to Tuesday at 6:00AM or both teams will forfeit and be out of post season play.

 

Midweek tournament games in which the distance to travel exceeds 75 miles may be played at a neutral site (unless agreed upon by both teams). Games that require a neutral site field (distance over 75 miles one-way for the lower seeded team) are the home team’s responsibility. If the home team fails to get a field, the away team (lower seeded team) will advance in the post season. The game location WILL NOT have a distance traveled by either team of more than 20 miles discrepancy, when possible. (In other words - one team cannot travel 20 miles and the other travel 55 miles.) The game location MUST be approved by the league president prior to Monday at 9:00PM. The game must be approved and finalized prior to Tuesday at 6:00AM or both teams will forfeit and be out of post season play.

 

Play-off games that are tied at the end of regulation time will be settled by 5 player penalty kicks. Only the championship matches will have two ten minutes sudden victory overtime periods. If the championship match is still tied at the conclusion of these overtime periods, the 5 player penalty kick tiebreaker will be used.
