WPSL Central Region Playoffs Preview

Playoffs! In the Northland!

As part of the planned rotation between regions, it has long been known that the Northern Conference’s winners this year would not only seal that conference’s only spot in the playoffs, but would also host the Central Regional finals. This year there is only one Conference Championship in the Central Region.

FC Pride (who finished third in the Gateway) play Lake Michigan winners Milwaukee Torrent for the Midwest Conference on Sunday for a place in Sioux Falls.

Sioux Falls City in the Northern Conference and the Heartland division winners Union KC are spared that extra game, Rockies division winners Colorado Pride have won the Mountain Conference’s spot in the Central Region’s final four.

I will be investigating how clubs qualified for the postseason without winning their conference.
