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. New in 2019, the ENPL National Playoff featured qualifying 14-U through 19-U boys teams in one location and welcomed teams from all NPLs and Boys ECNL Conferences. The new 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.
