MASL Releases Conference Final Schedule; Sockers Play Sunday in Monterrey
SAN DIEGO - The Major Arena Soccer League announced today the schedule for the Eastern and Western Conference Finals of the Ron Newman Cup.
Following this past weekend's Divisional Finals, there are four teams remaining in the playoffs; the Baltimore Blast and Milwaukee Wave in the East and the Monterrey Flash and San Diego Sockers in the West.
The Eastern and Western Conference Finals will be decided in a one-game playoff at the home of the higher-seeded teams, the Baltimore Blast and Monterrey Flash. The winners of each game will face off for the 2018 Ron Newman Cup Championship at a date/location to be determined.
In addition, the potential date/location for the Ron Newman Cup Championship has also been determined, based upon the outcome of the Southwest Division Championship.
