The playoffs are here!

Earlier today, the WPIAL released playoff brackets for the boys and girls classifications.

 

Right now you can get the latest merchandise at adidas.com! 

The response here on Pittsburgh Soccer Now, and our social media platforms was overwhelming. In less than five hours, we had more views and clicks to our site than we had on any other day since we began the new site started up in March!

The playoffs will start on Saturday, with girls first-round games first, then the boys will start play on Monday. The full schedule is listed below along with the links to the brackets.

Also, because of busy activity with posting scoreboards the past few nights, and the brackets coming out on Wednesday, we will be pushing back our Adidas Players of the Week announcement to Thursday.
