Each winner in the six divisions will receive a guaranteed $1 million.
The PFL wrapped up its regular season Thursday night with PFL 7 in Atlantic City, N.J., and with the brackets set for each of six divisions that will award $1 million to each playoff winner, the postseason gets underway in October.
PFL 8 is set for Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans on Oct. 5, a Friday night. PFL 9 takes the promotion to the West Coast at Long Beach Arena in California on Oct. 13, a Saturday.
