Taking part in the region playoffs does not make a team legible for invitations for tournaments outside region 73.
Only teams fulfilling the special requirements will be recommended by R73 for "Post Season Soccer." events.

How do teams make the region 73 playoffs?
Answer: by earning points during the season and meeting all regional requirements.
The standings are influenced by scheduled plays and referee work.
General requirements include finding a sponsor, complete training, registration, following the game play schedule, etc.
AYSO National R&R games: must have a referee to be considered a valid match played for standings.
Games without referee(s) are
 cancelled or considered scrimmages for practice. Neither team earns an (extra) point.
