    Doubt ECNL will be back in Florida for the playoffs in the future. Some teams only got 2 games in. Should have kept the playoffs in SoCal. Expensive trip for families and disappointing.

    ECNL Clubs and Families –

    First and foremost, we would like to thank you for your support and commitment to the ECNL over the past 12 months, in a year of unprecedented challenge and disruption. As you know, these challenges have continued into the ECNL Playoffs over the past few days with periods of heavy rain and winds. We thank you again for your patience through the multiple schedule changes over the past several days, and we also thank the fantastic staff at Premier Sports Complex for their work in managing the fields and working with us through these challenges.

    Unfortunately, a State of Emergency has been issued by the State of Florida for the Sarasota / Bradenton area due to tropical storm Elsa in the Caribbean, and the possibility that it impacts our area with high winds and significant rainfall on Tuesday. Beyond this declaration, and regardless of the ultimate classification of this storm, there is a near certainty of more significant rainfall on Tuesday that will make the fields unplayable for Tuesday and Wednesday. Based on this information, we have made the following decisions with respect to the continuation of the ECNL Playoffs:

    1. All games today, July 4, will go on as currently scheduled.

    CLICK HERE for schedule spreadsheet
    July 5th game times and field assignments will be assigned and added to the links above today

    2. The following games will be scheduled on Monday, July 5, in the 7:30, 9:30 and 11:30 time slots (specific fields and times will be provided shortly):
    U18 Champions League National Championship
    U17 Champions League Quarter-Finals
    U16 Champions League Quarter-Finals (moved up one day from the 6th)
    U15 Champions League Day 3
    U17 North American Cup Final
    U16 North American Cup Final
    Junior Showcase Day 2
    U14 Quarter Final (moved up one day from the 6th)
    U17 Showcase A Final
    U16 Showcase A Final
    U17 Showcase B Final
    U16 Showcase B Final

    3. All other games beyond the above specifically mentioned games have been cancelled.

    4. The U15 Quarter-Finals will be moved to Richmond, and the format of the U15 ECNL Finals will be adjusted.

    These decisions are very difficult to make. We feel that the above schedule will allow games to be safely played, while also providing significant notice for players and families to schedule earlier departures. Of course, every club and family should prioritize their safety in travel planning, and if a team will not be able to play on Monday, please let us know.

    Thank you for your support of the ECNL. We look forward to the 2021-2022 season.

    No. They didn't do live streaming of these games.

    That is sad. Even DPL recorded their games and posted on Veo. ECNL needs to step up their technology game.

    I suspect that they will start. Not because of GA, but just that is where things are going.

    Too bad they didn't start this yr.

    That veo system is pretty slick. You can download the whole game and edit selected parts if you wanted to create a highlight reel.

    Yep Veo is nice. Our club uses it. Last year we used another type. That one had some nice feature, but the vid quality was not/is not as good as Veo.
