[DATEBOOK] The USL PRO regular season concludes this weekend with nine games that will determine the final three playoff participants and the seeding for the six-team playoffs.

Doubleheaders between the Wilmington Hammerheads and Charlotte Eagles in North Carolina and the Harrisburg City Islanders and Los Angeles Blues in California will help decide the playoff field. The Richmond Kickers, who travel to Antigua to face last-place Barracuda FC in a pair of games, sit in fourth place with the best chance of making the playoffs.

-- Wilmington needs only a split with the Eagles to advance to the postseason. Charlotte, however, has been second only to Orlando in its form during the past 10 games, going 8-1-1, and would advance with a win and tie.

-- Harrisburg controls its own destiny. Two wins guarantee the City Islanders a top-six spot. The Blues, on the other hand, need to sweep -- and also get some help -- to reach the playoffs.

-- Richmond still needs one win to guarantee its playoff berth but it would likely finish second behind regular-season champion Orlando City with a sweep in the Caribbean. The Kickers  have a game in hand on both of the teams ahead of them, Rochester and Charleston, and an edge in goal differential on the Rhinos.

Seven games will be available on USLNation.com, including all of the Saturday and Sunday matches.
