In its inaugural season, Peoria City (6-3-3) earned its League Two playoff spot by finishing second in the Deep North Division. Although the No. 8 seed, Peoria City was moved to the Flint City bracket to avoid a matchup against division rival and the Central Conference’s top seed Des Moines Menace. While Des Moines is the two-time and defending League Two champion, Flint City is a traditionally strong franchise that won the 2019 national title.
