TAMPA, Fla. – The PDL announced today the match-ups for its Playoffs’ National Semifinals, with the Eastern Conference Champion Carolina Dynamo hosting the Southern Conference Champion Orlando City U23, and Western Conference Champion the Sounders FC U23 traveling to face Central Conference Champion FC London.
FC London is the biggest surprise of the semifinalists, with the club securing victories against the two teams with the best regular-season records in the PDL.
