2017-18 NPL Auto-Qualifiers

In the 04-00/01 age group the majority of the teams will qualify based on their 2017-18 NPL results. All Champions League, NPL 1 and NPL 2 (except 01G) will qualify for the 2018-19 NorCal NPL. In the NPL 3, only up to half of the teams will auto-qualify. Click on the link below for an NPL division by division breakdown on where NPL teams need place to auto-qualify for 2018-19.

2017-18 State Premier Championship Division Winner

The winner of the 2017-18 Spring State Premier Championship division also earns an automatic spot in the 2018-19 NorCal NPL. In addition, the 2nd-5th place teams from the State Premier Championship earn an automatic spot in the 2018-19 NPL Qualification League over the Summer for one last chance to qualify for NPL.

2018 NPL Qualification Summer League

The final chance for teams to qualify or re-qualify for the 2018-19 NorCal NPL will be via the NPL Qualification League played over the Summer. The number of spots available in each age group will be determined in late May. NPL clubs (non-NPL teams), 2nd-5th place State Premier Championship teams, and 2017-18 NPL relegated teams are all automatically accepted into the Qualification League. In addition, in some age groups, additional spots may be available and will be chosen by NorCal based on past history in NorCal and other top competitions.
