NCAA Division I Softball Committee announces 2024 championship field

INDIANAPOLIS —Texas today earned the No. 1 seed in the NCAA Division I Softball Championship as the NCAA Division I Softball Committee announced the field and seedings for the 2024 NCAA Division I Softball Championship.

Thirty-two conferences automatically qualified as conference champions, while the remaining 32 slots were filled with at-large selections to complete the bracket. The top 16 teams have been seeded nationally and will perform at campus locations beginning Friday.

Regionals will be held May 17-19, with each campus location hosting a four-team double-elimination tournament. The 16 winning teams will advance to the super regionals.

Championship Super Regionals will be held May 23-26 at eight campus locations. Two teams will play in a best-of-three tournament format at each location.

The winners of each super regional will advance to the NCAA® Women’s College World Series® from May 30 to June 6/7 at Devon Park in Oklahoma City.

Dayton, Siena and Southeast Louisiana are participating in the tournament for the first time.

In 2023, Oklahoma won its third straight national championship and seventh overall by defeating Florida State 5-0 and 3-1 in the best-of-three championship final.

The Sooners became only the second school to win three in a row, joining UCLA (1988, 1989, 1990). No school has ever won four consecutive Division I national softball championships.

ESPN will provide coverage from all 16 regional locations on one of ESPN’s platforms, as announced during the NCAA Softball Selection Show. ESPN will televise every game of the Super Regionals for the 17th consecutive season, despite 2020, since 2007. This year also marks the 23rd year in a row that ESPN will televise every game of the Women’s College World Series.
