College softball is a fast moving, highly competitive women's sport, and it is extremely entertaining to watch. Buying NCAA softball tickets opens the door to a fascinating world of women's college sport where the competition is fierce, and teams such as the Auburn Tigers and the LSU Tigers compete to see who will ultimately triumph in the Women's College World series (WCWS). Softball is a growing sport across the world, and many of those competing in the NCAA will go on to become the stars of tomorrow. Softball was briefly an Olympic sport in the late 20th and early 21st century, and the International Softball Federation (ISF) hosted the inaugural World University Softball Championship in 2004. This eight nation championship was won by the USA. In 2007 softball was added to the World University Games by the Fédération Internationale du Sport Universitaire (FISU)
How NCAA Softball teams compete
1982 saw the first NCAA Women's College World Series, but that was not the beginning of the sport. The very first Women's College World Series was sponsored by the Division of Girls' and women's Sports and the Amateur Softball Association and held in Omaha, Nebraska as far back as 1969. The tournament became an annual one and today those with NCAA softball tickets can enjoy an exciting competition that features 64 teams from across 16 regions. In recent years the tournament has frequently been dominated by Pac-12 Conference teams, in particular the University of Arizona, and the UCLA, although there are more than 600 colleges across the USA that sponsor NCAA women's softball programs and championships are held in divisions,1,2, and 3.
Where to watch the NCAA Softball WCWS
As the governing body of NCAA softball, the National Collegiate Athletic Association establishes the rules of the game, while the softball sanctioning body looks after the season end tournaments. The Women's College World Series is the final rounds of the NCAA tournaments. The WCWS has had various homes throughout the years. It was first played in Omaha, Nebraska from 1969-79, and again from 1982-1987. It has also been based in Norman, Oklahoma, and in Sunnyvale, California. Since 1990 the event has had a more permanent base in the Don E Porter Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City.
