There has been a lot of talk recently about the official structure for the BAFANL Playoffs this summer and we here at Yankin Off (a founding member of British American Sports Network) decide to answer the question.
Playoff structure 2014
1- Won/Loss/Tied % record
2- Head to Head points differential during regular season (when two teams tied on same % record)
3- Lowest Average points conceded in games played (Excludes awarded games)
4- Record for both teams against common opponents during the regular season Won/Loss/Tied % (awarded games excluded)
5- Highest Won/Loss/Tied % for scheduled away games
6- Lowest number of players ejected
7- A coin toss (by league office)
If three or more teams are tied on final win/loss/tied %, then follow the tie breakers until a team is excluded, then restart tie breakers for remaining teams.
Final week of Regular season – 17th August
Quarter Finals – w/e 24th August
Semi Finals – w/e 31st August
Britbowl – 14th September
League playoff structures are :-
8 teams per division in Qtr finals, in a Nationally ranked structure.
(For both Premier and National Divisions)
Premier is ranked #1 to #4 in a North/South conference split.
Q1 – North #1 hosts South #4
Q2 – South #2 hosts North #3
Q3 – South #1 hosts North #4
Q4 – North #2 hosts South #3
S1 = Q1 winners v Q2 Winners (highest ranked at home)
S2 = Q3 winners v Q4 winners (highest ranked at home)
5 Regional Champions are ranked #1 to #5, then the Three next best records will be ranked #6 to #8
Nat #1 hosts Nat#8
Nat #2 hosts Nat #7
Nat #3 hosts Nat #6
Nat #4 hosts Nat #5
Highest Ranked team hosts 4th Ranked team remaining
2nd Ranked team hosts 3rd Ranked team remaining.
I’m Matt and I know how this years playoffs will be seeded.
