The Simulation Football League presented by APM Music has finalized its full playoff schedule for Season 11 and – as always this time of year – releases its first edits to the Week 13 slate.
The Playoffs will get underway Wednesday October 10 at 6:30 p.m. CT on Twitch for Wild Card Wednesday. The second game of the doubleheader, called by Steven Mullenax and Cameron Irvine, will kickoff at 8:15 p.m.
The Quarterfinals get started Sunday October 14 with a doubleheader at 5 and 7, in games matching No. 7 vs. No. 10 and No. 8 vs. No. 9 – Irvine and Mullenax will call the 7 CT game. Monday October 15 will feature the Wild Card winners vs. the top two teams from the regular season, Alaska and Tallahassee. That doubleheader will get underway at 6:30 CT, with an 8:15 CT kickoff to follow.
The SFL Semifinals feature the four remaining teams on a Monday night doubleheader at 6:30 and 8:15 CT on October 22. Irvine and Mullenax will call one of those two games.
The SFL Championship Game this season will kickoff at 8 CT with a four-man broadcast crew and two live statisticians tracking offense and defense, and is tentatively scheduled for Monday October 29, with Sunday October 28 serving as a back-up kickoff date due to any unforeseen schedule conflicts. Irvine and Mullenax will make up two of the four on that crew.
All other broadcasters will be determined after the Week 13 slate and will be announced in a separate release. Five different crews from the SFL’s talented broadcast team from around the world will get to call a Twitch Front Page contest, three quarterfinals duals and a semifinal.
All playoff games will air on the Twitch SFL Network.
