Default ECNL Regional League Playoff Announcement

RICHMOND, VA (May 9, 2019) – The Girls ECNL Regional League platform will be formally launched this August with multiple leagues across the country, following successful pilot programs during the 2018-19 season.

Providing immediate meaning, winners of the 2019-2020 Girls ECNL Regional Leagues will qualify for the new Open Cup Division of the Girls ECNL Playoffs in June, where they will also compete against qualifying teams from the Girls ECNL.

Beginning in 2020, the Girls ECNL Open Cup will be the 4th division of the ECNL Playoffs, and will include three age groups (U15, U16, U17). Qualifying teams will compete in a knockout style bracket for the Open Cup championship. The ECNL Playoffs will continue to include the Champions League, North American Cup, and Showcase Cup divisions.

“Providing a post-season linkage between the ECNL Regional Leagues and the Girls ECNL itself will provide immediate exposure and value for players and teams in the ECNL Regional Leagues, while also allowing clubs to demonstrate their quality on a national stage,” said President Christian Lavers. “We are excited to begin creating a pathway that will provide opportunity to a whole new group of players and teams across the country.”

While extending an ECNL experience to new players and teams, the Girls ECNL Regional Leagues will also provide a platform for objective evaluation of new member clubs for the Girls ECNL in future years.

All Girls ECNL Regional Leagues will be operated and managed by the ECNL to insure professionalism and exceptional experience.

Additional information on the 2019-2020 Girls ECNL Regional League platform and membership will be released in the coming weeks.[/quote]

Sounds like some improvement over NE NPL. Interested in seeing what else they do.

Read it a little closer, definitely not an improvement and in fact may even be worse. Instead of having their own dedicated tournament these teams are now relegated to the fourth tier of a different league's tournament. These teams will not get any more exposure in terms of coaches and may even get less. Wake up people.

Geez, who peed in your Cheerios this morning? This is definitely an improvement over NE NPL! No college coaches go to NPL playoffs, heck barely any go to the finals championship. At least now, the 2nd teams will get a chance to play against ECNL teams at a showcase that has tons of college coaches. Maybe you haven't noticed but attendance at Disney, Wags, Bethesda and even Jeff Cup is way down now that coaches are factoring GDA showcases into their budget too!

Which is better:

- Their own dedicated tournament which no colleges attend

or

- Playing in a national showcase tournament where tons of colleges attend

Seems to me like the latter is far better.
