USL Playoffs Bracket - 2016

And then there were eight: WFC2 among USL conference semifinalists

VANCOUVER, BC – And then there were eight.

WFC2 booked their ticket to the USL Conference Semifinals on Friday night, defeating Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC 2-1 in their first-ever playoff match. As it turns out, after a weekend of upsets, sixth-seed WFC2 are the second highest seed remaining in the Western Conference.

That means the young ‘Caps will now host their first-ever home playoff match on Saturday afternoon at UBC Thunderbird Stadium (12 p.m. PT vs. OKC Energy FC).

All WFC2 season ticket members will receive tickets to the match, while Tier 1 (MLS) season ticket members can still use their vouchers to attend. Fans may also purchase single match tickets at ticketmaster.ca, on sale now.

See the updated USL playoff bracket below:

WFC2 are one of three MLS-owned clubs remaining in the 2016 USL Cup Playoffs, joining Western Conference foe Swope Park Rangers (Sporting Kansas City) and New York Red Bulls II.

Should WFC2 win on Sunday, they would visit Swope Park Rangers or host Orange County Blues FC in the Western Conference Final on the weekend of October 14-16.
