The 2007 Founders Cup Playoffs of the Professional Inline Hockey Association began on April 24, 2007. The sixteen teams that qualified, four from each division, played best-of-3 series for the division semifinals and division finals, best-of-5 series for the conference championships, and then the conference champions played a best-of-7 series for the Founders Cup. The series end on June 27, 2007 with the Boston Roller Rats defeating the Southside Snipers four games to three. For the first time since PIHA's inaugural season (2002), neither of the two Founders Cup finalists (the Boston Roller Rats and the Southside Snipers) has previously won the Cup. Both teams were also expansion teams for the 2006-07 season.

In the division semifinals and finals, the higher seeded team based on points is awarded home court advantage, which gives them home court during the series. The conference finals and Founders Cup Final are then played at neutral sites. The Eastern Conference Final was played at Sportsplex in Feasterville, Pennsylvania. The Western Conference Final was played at All American Sports Mall in St. Louis, Missouri. The Founders Cup Final was played at Tour Hockey Arena in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
