The RTTL Sumer league 2017 schedule is available here for download:
2017 SUMMER LEAGUE- schedule
Note: There are no league matches the week of the National Championships (Week of Mon July 10th)

The league has reached complete capacity as far as the venue is concerned in a 4 division format.
All teams be aware that the intention of the league is to go to 5 Divisions very possibly next summer if the entry is similar or bigger. We have had to go over the 8 team maximum per Division to simply get the number of teams in this summer. However see below lists to see the predicted Divisional formats expected for 2018

This would mean the following potential expected relegations this Summer:

2017 -> 2018
Division 1, 7 teams : No 2017 teams relagated
Division 2, 8 teams : One 2017 team relegated-One team promoted from Div 3
Division 3, 10 teams : Two 2017 teams relegated-One team promoted from Div 4
Division 4, 9 teams : Up to 4 2017 teams possibly relegated to Div 5-One team promoted to Div 3
Division 5, 2017 No teams: Up to 8 teams to be excepted for 2018
All 2018 Summer League Divisions expected to be maximum 8 teams.

The above 2018 format would also allow for up to 4 more division 5 slots if needed. Division 5 2018 if it materializes will be played in the upstairs section of Bridgeport SC on Wednesday nights.
The idea of the above format will be to get all divisions back to 8 teams maximum in the space of just one season.

Looking forward to seeing you all there this summer.
