Interactive Bracket | Printable Bracket

The championship provides for a 32-team tournament.  Automatic qualification (AQ) is granted to 23 conference champions, which form “Pool A.” Three teams are selected from true independents and schools from conferences that do not have an automatic bid for their champions (Pool B).

The remaining six teams are selected from those teams in conferences with automatic bids that did not win their conference’s AQ and the remaining Pool B institutions (Pool C).  The teams are geographically paired, whenever possible.

Except for the championship game, all games will be played on the campus of one of the competing teams.  First round competition will be held on Wednesday, May 6 with the winners advancing to play in the second round on Saturday, May 9. The eight remaining teams will play in the quarterfinals, Wednesday, May 13 and the semifinals will be played Sunday, May 17.

This year’s finalists will advance to Philadelphia  for the championship game at Lincoln Financial Field, which will be played at 4 p.m. Eastern time, Sunday, May 24, and shown via web stream on NCAA.com.

That game will be preceded by the Division II championship at 1 p.m. Eastern time, which can also be seen on NCAA.com.  The Division I semifinals and championship are Saturday, May 23 and Monday, May 25 at the same site.
