USSDA playoffs kickoff this week

The USSDA playoffs are finally here. After a long season that started back in September of 2018 three TFC Academy sides are off to Southern California this week to take part in their first ever USSDA playoffs.

Earlier this week each of the TFC teams were drawn into their respective groups for the opening round robin portion of the playoffs. The top team from each group will advance to the knockout portion of the playoffs. The knockout rounds will continue until four teams in each age group remain, with those top four teams moving on to the USSDA Championship being held in July in Irvine, California where ultimately a champion will be crowned.

The Toronto FC U-18/19 team, who went 14-6-2 this year, will open up their playoffs on Monday at 2:30 PM (All times are local) when they take on Baltimore Armour, they will then take on Weston FC on Wednesday at 1:00 PM and close out the group stage vs. New York City FC on Friday at 1:15 PM.

The TFC U-16/17 team, who went 19-2-1 this season, open up their playoffs vs. FC Westchester on Tuesday at 4:00 PM, will then take on Real Salt Lake on Thursday at 4:00 PM and battle Real Colorado at 2:30 PM on Saturday.

The U-15 team arrives in California off a undefeated regular season going 20-0-1. They will open their playoffs against Weston FC on Thursday at 1:00 PM, battle the Seattle Sounders at 5:15 PM and close on with a 401-derby matchup against the Montreal Impact at 1:00 PM on Sunday.
