The United Soccer League (USL) announced that it was ready to start the 2017 playoffs as 846 different teams from across the United States, Canada, Guam and outer North Haverbrook made the playoffs.
"We are excited to welcome Reno 1868, Reno 1869, Reno 1870 and Reno 911 to the 2017 USL Playoffs," stated USL President Jake Edwards. "We are also excited to add Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Norman, Ardmore, Lawton, Muskogee, Broken Arrow, Bartlesville, Avoca and the Circle B Quick Stop FC located in Asher to the playoffs."
Reportedly, the list of playoff teams is so long that the USL is afraid that it may not complete the 2017 playoffs before the 2018 season starts as they stated, "we just need to get these games going so that we can whittle the number of teams down to 10 or so."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as the Flagstaff Kachina FC take on Oskaloosa Parks Department AC for the semi north west south eastern regional qualification round.
