The 2017 Fred Page Cup playoff format will see 14 teams qualify – four from the Island Division, four from the Mainland Division and six from the Interior Division. (This means all Interior teams are in the playoffs, unless the fifth-place team from the Mainland has more points in the standings than Interior sixth place. In that case, the Mainland team will cross over and play as the No. 6 seed in the Interior).
Also of note for the Interior, the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds will have a first-round bye. The Mainland and Island winners will meet in Round 3 to determine who will go to the Finals against the winner of the Interior.
Each round sets up as a best-of-seven series.
The dates for each round will be as follows:
Round 1 – Must be completed between Friday, March 3 and Sunday, March 12
Round 2 – Must be completed between Friday, March 17 and Sunday, March 26
Round 3 – Must be completed between Friday, March 31 and Sunday, April 9
Round 4 (Fred Page Cup Finals) – Must be completed between Friday, April 14 and Sunday April 23
