The NWPL 2019 Season Schedule Is Here!

 

The 2019 Northwest Premier League season kicks off on Saturday, May 4th with three games hosted by the Oly-Pen Force, Washington Premier and Capital FC Atletica, the first day of a season that features 36 games between nine teams ranging from Salem, Oregon to Wenatchee, Washington culminating with the NWPL Championship Game on July 21st or July 22nd.

The league features the same nine teams from the 2018 season, including the league champion Seattle Stars, who begin their title defense on Sunday, May 12th when they play host to the Oly-Pen Force. Washington Premier finished second, falling to the Stars in the championship game, but they will seek their first title beginning on May 4th at the Washington Premier Complex against Twin City Union.

Week One features four games. In addition to WA Premier’s opener, Capital FC Atletica opens at home on May 4th against Yakima United, the Oly-Pen Force welcomes Blackhills FC to town on the 4th, and on May 5th, NCW Alliance opens their season at home against the Washington Timbers.

Yakima United and Twin City Union open their home slates on Sunday, May 12th against the Washington Timbers and Blackhills FC respectively. Blackhills FC is the last team to play their first home game, kicking off in Olympia on May 18th against the Seattle Stars.

The regular season runs from May 4th until June 30th with each team playing eight games, one game against each league team. The top six teams in the league table at the end of the season advance to the playoffs. The #1 and #2 seeds get a bye in the first round and advance to the semifinals that will be played on July 13/14. The first round features games between the #3 and #6 seeds and #4 and #5 seeds on July 6/7. The championship game will be played on July 21/22 at the home field of the highest remaining seed.

This is the fourth season of the Northwest Premier League. The Spokane Shadow captured the title in the 2016 inaugural season, the Washington Timbers won their first championship in 2017, and the Seattle Stars took the trophy last season.
