2017-18 NPL Qualification
2017-18 NPL Qualification Procedure
This year, NorCal will be removing the NPL application in all age groups (except U14). The only way for teams to qualify for the NPL in 2017-18 is by earning an automatic spot based on placement in the NPL or to qualify through the State Premier division or NorCal State Cup (top-division finalists). Teams in this spring’s Champions League, NPL 1, and NPL 2 have auto-qualified for the 2017-18 NorCal NPL. The link below contains information on how teams qualify from the NPL 3.
The winner of the State Premier Championship division also qualifies for the 2017-18 NorCal NPL. The 2nd place team from the State Premier Championship division plays-off with a NPL 3 opponent for the final automatic NPL berth. The NPL/State Premier playoff takes place on the June 4-5 weekend.
