The Philadelphia Soul's quest to return to the ArenaBowl and compete for their fourth championship in franchise history will run through the reigning champion Washington Valor (7-5).
On Monday, the team announced its 2019 playoff schedule, after this past weekend finishing the Arena Football League regular season with the third seed.
- Sunday, July 28: at Valor, 3:30 p.m., Capital One Arena
- Sunday, August 4: vs. Valor, 4 p.m., Wells Fargo Center
- Sunday, August 11 (if necessary): ArenaBowl XXXII, 8 p.m., Times-Union Center (if against Albany Empire)/Boardwalk Hall (if against Baltimore Brigade)
The Valor (second seed) defeated the Soul in both meetings, although the Soul still hold an all-time 6-3 record, including a 4-1 road record, against them. The team with the highest aggregate score between the two home-and-home games on July 28 and August 4 will advance to ArenaBowl XXXII to face the winner of the Albany Empire-Baltimore Brigade series.
