USL president explains hosting process

July 15th, 2012 by jeff graham

Received an email from United Soccer Leagues president Tim Holt today. He wanted to clarify the hosting process for the conference playoffs. It turns out the league doesn’t pick one bid over another. It’s a decision made based on seeding.

Holt: Ventura County Fusion exercises their first right to host as the overall #1 seeded team in the conference based on total points.  We did not “reject” the Kitsap host proposal because the #1 seed exercised its right to host by meeting the hosting specifications for this round.

That means that Kitsap, as the third-place team from the Northwest Division, would have needed several teams to pass on bidding in order to land the conference playoffs.

Makes sense….
