We’re on the road to Oklahoma City as the 2022 NCAA Softball Tournament is set to begin this Friday, May 20 at campus sites all over the nation.

The tournament will get rolling with the Regional round, where the 64 qualifying programs have been divvied up into 16 regions hosted by the nation’s top teams. The four teams in each region will spend the weekend competing in a double elimination tournament to determine a champion for that particular region.

From there, the 16 regional champions will advance to to the Super Regional round beginning on Thursday, May 26. Here, region champions will be paired up and compete against each other in a best-of-three series played at the host site of the higher ranked team.

The eight remaining teams will advance to the Women’s College World Series beginning on June 2 at USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City. The participants will compete in a double-elimination tournament until the final two teams standing duke it out in a best-of-three series to determine a national champion.Here’s the complete bracket for the 2022 NCAA Softball Tournament
