The 2018 boys soccer state tournament brackets are out, and Fairview (5A), Air Academy (4A), Atlas Prep (3A), and Crested Butte (2A) are the top seeds.

Find the complete brackets here:

League champions automatically qualified for the brackets, and then the remaining spots were filled by the final RPI standings of the regular season, which were finalized on Monday morning. The RPI standings also helped to seed the brackets.

This marks the inaugural tournament for 2A.

The tournaments begin play with the first rounds in 2A and 4A on Wednesday. The first rounds for 3A and 5A are Thursday.

From there, the 2A quarterfinals are on Saturday. The 3A and 4A second round are on Oct. 30; the 5A second round is Oct. 31.

Nov. 3 features the 2A semifinals, and the quarterfinals in all other classifications. The 3A, 4A and 5A semifinals are Nov. 7.

The championship games will again be at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, but the addition of a fourth class has forced the move of one game to a second day. As such, the 5A title game will be on Nov. 9, and the 2A, 3A and 4A title games will play on Nov. 10.
