With three regular season games left, it’s a #RaceToFirst in the East Division! Your defending world champion Georgia Swarm (8-7) is currently in a three-way tie for first place with Rochester and Buffalo. When it’s all said and done, the Top 3 teams in the East Division will advance to the 2018 NLL Playoffs. Currently only 1.0 game separates the three first place teams from the bottom of the division as Toronto and New England both sit at 7-8.
Want to help the Swarm #DefendTheCup in 2018!? You can now reserve tickets for the first Swarm home playoff game! Here’s how the scenarios could play out…
- If the Swarm wins the East Division for the second-straight year, we will be the #1 seed and will have a first-round bye. The Swarm would then host the East Division Finals against the winner of the #2 vs. #3 matchup on Saturday, May 12 at 7:05 PM from Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Field at Infinite Energy Arena. Unlike last year, the East Division Finals is now a single-elimination game, and the winner advances to the 2018 NLL Championship (Best-of-3 series).
- If the Swarm finishes as the #2 seed in the East, we will host the East Division Semifinals against the #3 seed. This matchup would take place on Saturday, May 5 at 7:05 PMfrom Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Field at Infinite Energy Arena. This is a single-elimination game. The winner would play on the road in the East Division Finals against the #1 seed, which is also a single-elimination game.
- If the Swarm finishes as the #3 seed, we would play on the road against the #2 seed in the East Division Semifinals on a date TBD. The only chance for a home game in this scenario would be if the Swarm advances to the 2018 NLL Championship, a Best-of-3 series.
