2017-18 NPL Qualification

2017-18 NPL Qualification Procedure

norcal npl format

 

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.

NPL 3 Promotion and Relegation Process

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.
