NLL Playoff Format

Posted: December 17, 2018 in NLL, NLL Playoffs, Uncategorized

Round 1 – The East and West Division winners will be seeded #1 within their respective divisions and play the #4 seed, while the #2 and #3 seeds play each other in the first round. The highest seed hosts Round 1.

Division Finals – One-game series between the winners of Round 1, hosted by the highest-remaining seed.

NLL Finals – East vs. West Division winners in a best of three series. The highest-remaining seed will host games one and three, if necessary.

Should be top two in each division. Eight of Eleven teams is just too many in a league with eleven teams.

Even with the expanded playoff format, Philly will still fail to qualify.
