NLL – One of the most noticeable changes this season will be amendments to the league’s playoff format. The new format will now feature sudden death games throughout both the divisional semi-finals and finals. The Champions Cup will remain a best-of-three series between the East and West Division champions. Each year the Board of Governors strives to elevate the value of the NLL and the new format is sure to create a new level of excitement surrounding our playoffs. The 2017 to 2018 playoff format is below:

Division Semi-Final – 1 game, single game elimination

Division Final – 1 game, single game elimination

Champions Cup – best of three series

“The Competition Committee meets every off-season to review rules from the previous season and scrutinize any game situations in order to improve the safety and game flow for our players,” said NLL VP of Lacrosse Operations Brian Lemon. “It is our job as a league to continuously provide the highest level of entertainment value for our fans and we believe that is achieved through our new playoff format.”
