The 2019 Elite National Premier League (ENPL) National Playoff was held June 28-July 2 at Mercyhealth Sportscore Two in Rockford, Ill., as the postseason platform debuted a new structure. The impressive complex – featuring 29 fields and an indoor sports center – was awarded hosting privileges.
In 2018, the ENPL postseason was held in two locations on the East and West Coasts. In 2019, the platform transitioned to having the ENPL National Playoff feature qualifying 14-U through 19-U boys teams in one location and welcomed teams from all NPLs and Boys ECNL Conferences. This format provided a pathway for all member teams to compete for national championships on the field.
For 14-U through 17-U teams, this tournament was the first of a two-stage postseason with top teams advancing to the 2019 ENPL National Finals (July 11-15 in Commerce City, Colorado): top four from 14-U bracket and top eight of each 15-U, 16-U and 17-U divisions. For 19-U teams, the 2019 ENPL National Playoff was a single-stage postseason with one national championship awarded in Illinois.
