A team must win three best-of-three playoff rounds to win the President’s Cup. The first round must be played between Monday, March 25 and Sunday, March 31, the second round between Monday, April 1 and Sunday, April 7 and the third between Monday, April 8 and Sunday, April 14.
The SPHL and the two organizations playing for the President's Cup can choose to play a best-of-five series and extend the finals by one week prior to the start of the finals as long as certain scenarios take place.
The Ice Flyers will finish the regular season with games at Columbus, Ga., on Friday and Biloxi, Miss., on Friday. Pensacola will host the Louisiana IceGators at 3:05 p.m. Sunday in the Pensacola Bay Center. If the Flyers win Friday and Saturday, they will play for the regular-season championship Sunday.

Season ticketholders still have time to reserve their seats for the playoff home games that were not included in their season ticket package.
