Changes from 2013[edit]

The league added a new Northwest Conference in the West Region in 2014. The league also split the Great Lakes Conference into two separate conferences, Great Lakes East and Great Lakes West. The Mid-Atlantic Conference was split in two with teams from Virginia and Maryland staying within the Conference and moving to the Northeast Region (including defending Champion RVA Football Club) and the remaining teams forming the new South Atlantic Conference. The Atlantic Conference was also renamed the North Atlantic Conference. The following changes regarding team relocation, rebranding, or expansion are effective for the 2014 NPSL season:

The Conference was divided into North (Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Joplin, and Liverpool) and South (Fort Worth, Dallas, BCS, San Antonio) Divisions, with four teams in each division. Each team played the other three teams twice, once home and once away, and the four teams in the other division once, two home and two away, randomly selected.

The top two teams from each division with the most points advanced to the South Central Conference playoffs, with the first place team in the North playing the second place team in the South and the first place team in the South playing the second place team in the North. The winner of those two games played for the South Central Conference Championship.

A preseason tournament called the Red River Cup between Tulsa, Oklahoma City FC, Liverpool Warriors, and Fort Worth was hosted by Tulsa on May 2 and 3.

Playoff dates for the South Central Conference will be Friday, July 11 with the final on Sunday, July 13. The winner continued on to the South Region playoffs.[20]
