The second half of the FGL Season 2017
As we enter the 3rd week of play, we thought we would sum up what is left to happen. This weekend, the conference playoff matchups will be determined.
The Orlando Aces vs the SWFL Sharks
Both teams put up a great fight, but ultimately fell to the current Northern Conference team to beat, the Tampa Bay Brigade.
The winner of this matchup goes on to the Conference Championship to take another shot at the Brigade, on Saturday the 11th in the late afternoon as part of Championship Weekend.
The Palm Beach Elite vs the Fort Lauderdale Lions
Both teams are coming off nail biter matches that came down to the last race. The Lions lost to the Miami Freaks and need to win this match to make the playoffs.
The Palm Beach Elite have secured their spot in the playoffs with tiebreaker points gathered in their win over the Freaks in week 2, but cannot afford to enter the playoffs coming off of a loss to the team they would then meet. This is their last chance to fine tune their teamwork and experience before taking on either the Lions or Freaks to try to go to the Championship.
The Freaks are in the uneasy position of unable to control their destiny. If the Elite wins, they make the playoffs, if the Lions win, the Freaks will play in the Redemption match on Sunday of Championship Weekend. More on that below.
Championship Weekend, Saturday the 11th
The weekend will kick off with the last GRID 6 of 2017 in the mornings of both days the 11th and 12th.
On Saturday following GRID 6, there will be seminars from pro NPGL players and current coaches in the FGL Season teaching aspects of GRID like high level gymnastics, barbell cycling, and GRID rules/strategy basics. Email us at email@example.com for more information.
In the late afternoon and evening will be the two Conference Championship matches.
Championship Weekend, Sunday the 12th
GRID 6 Finale will wrap up and we will crown the Champion team by early afternoon.
Following the GRID 6 award ceremony, the FGL Season Redemption match will take place between the two teams that do not make the playoffs. This match is not only about ending the Season on a positive note with a win, but the winner of this match will also earn the first pick of the schedule matches for the 2018 Season, a big competitive advantage. There is still a lot on the line.
Directly following this match will be the 2017 Championship Match, where we find the Champion of the 2017 FGL Season and winning team of $20,000
