How the USL Playoffs Work

The Legion qualified for the playoffs on the heels of a 9 game unbeaten streak that was snapped last Saturday by Louisville City. Sixteen teams punched their ticket for the single-elimination USL Championship Playoffs. Home field advantage in the Eastern and Western Conference Quarterfinals went to the top two teams in each of the four divisions. Finishing 2nd in the USL Central Division secured the Legion a home playoff game.

Here is the path to the USL Championship Game.
