CHICAGO -- The Chicago Red Stars' final regular-season game in Women's Premier Soccer League play has been canceled.

The Red Stars were scheduled to play Eclipse Select for a Tuesday match open only to Red Stars Supporters Club members. But because the game will not impact the standings, both teams and the league have agreed to allow the match to not be played.

The game will not be rescheduled. The Red Stars already have finalized their position with the Midwest-North Division title, and Eclipse is out of the postseason picture. The match is a mutual cancellation and does not count as a forfeit.

The Red Stars wrapped up the WPSL regular season as the top seed in the Midwest-North with an 8-1-0 record and will face the No. 2 seed of the Midwest-South Division, FC Indiana, in a postseason match. FC Indiana plays its final regular-season match Monday night against Hammer FC, but Indiana already has clinched second place behind top Midwest-South seed Ohio Premier Women's SC.
