With the finalization of the 2020 PIAA State Football Championship brackets we can now establish a 2020 District II Playoff Championship format.

The PIAA District II Football Committee did not wish to disrupt the regular season schedules that have been put in place by the WVC and LIAA and run through Saturday, October 31st.  In all classifications, with the exception of 1A, 2A and 6A, we have been provided the opportunity to play a District II Championship game on the field.  Each Championship will be determined as follows:

1A:  Holy Cross will be opting out of District playoff consideration, leaving Old Forge as our representative in the November 6 or November 7 game vs. District 1.  Old Forge will host that game.

2A:  The five 2A schools were polled and the majority of those schools were in favor of maintaining the established schedules through October 30-31.  Therefore, the District II 2A Champion will be determined utilizing the power rankings.  The Highest power ranking following the completion of games on October 31st will be the District II Champion and host the District XII Champion on November 6 or November 7.

3A:  The two highest power rankings following completion of the games of October 30 and October 31 will play each other for the District II Championship.  That game will be played at the higher seed on November 6 or November 7.  The District II Champion will then enter the state playoffs by hosting the District III Champion on the weekend of November 13 or November 14.

4A:  The two highest power rankings following completion of the games of October 30 and October 31 will play each other for the District II Championship.  That game will be played at the higher seed on November 6 or November 7.  The District II Champion will then enter the state playoffs by hosting the District IV Champion on the weekend of November 13 or November 14.

5A:  Wyoming Valley West is the only remaining team in the District II/XI 5A Sub-region and will represent District II in the state playoffs.  They will travel to either the District VI or District X Champion on the weekend of November 13 or November 14.

6A:  The four 6A schools were polled and the majority of those schools were in favor of playing a District II Championship game the weekend of October 30 or October 31.  Following the completion of games on Saturday, October 24 the two highest power rankings will play each on October 30 or October 31.  The game will be played at the higher seed.  The District II Champion will travel to the District IV or District VI Champion on November 6 or November 7.

The PIAA has established the weekend of November 27 & 28 as the dates for the PIAA State Football Championships.
