Post Season Information

Playoff Information

Certification of District Representatives. The District Chairman will certify representatives. The last day for determining the district champions is March 23, 2024.

Warm-Up Games. Teams that have advanced to the playoffs may schedule a warm-up game after the District Certification Date that is set by the UIL calendar and before their first playoff game if a team has not reached their allowable season limit. School week limitations still apply. Note: Prior to district certification, games left in a teams allowable season limit may be scheduled like any other regular season game.

  • Exception – Warm-up games for teams who have exhausted their season limit are given a UIL exception under the following conditions:
    • Teams that are a district champion and have a first round bye.
    • The one game exception can be played only at the end of your school day on Friday, last day of instruction (with no loss of school time) or anytime on Saturday.

UIL Playoff Reporting - Teams Advancing. Coaches are required to submit playoff results immediately following their contest. The winning school should submit playoff game results and next round information via MaxPreps through the assigned coach/admin account. The score reported by a coach on a team’s page will automatically fill in the bracket.

  • The completeness of the data presented on the UIL Texas Scoreboard will be dependent upon the participation of schools and coaches. For more information, please see

Sites. Sites for all rounds of playoffs prior to the regional tournament are to be selected by the teams involved. See Section 1208 (o)(p) of the UIL Constitution and Contest Rules.  If schools cannot agree, they must flip a coin. 

  • Neutral Sites:  A site mid-point or near mid-point, or a site agreed on by both schools as neutral, is a neutral site.  Unless mutually agreeable, a site cannot be neutral if its distance from either school is more than two-thirds the total distance between the schools.
  • Home Sites:  When two schools flip for two separate sites other than their home field or court, the sites are considered home sites unless both sites are near mid-point.
  • Mid-Point Sites:  Unless mutually agreed otherwise, post-district contests in the team sports of baseball, basketball, soccer, softball, team tennis, and volleyball shall be a mid-point site for schools located more than 100 miles apart.

Playoffs. In all playoff games, bi-district through the state tournament, if a tie exists at the end of regulation time, the following procedure shall be followed:

  • Play two ten-minute overtime periods, and if a tie still exists,
  • A shoot out shall be conducted.

Suspended Playoff Games. In games beyond the district level, a game begun then suspended, shall continue from the point of suspension as soon as a playable field is available. Playoff certification deadlines may not be extended without the permission of the UIL athletic director or soccer director.

Officials.  In all conferences at all playoff levels, except regional tournaments and state tournaments, officials are to be obtained by the two schools involved. If schools cannot mutually agree, then the UIL will assign officials.  Please use the "Soccer Officials Assignment Request Form" located at for this request.
