When is the 2018 Women's College World Series?

Top 10 Plays of the 2017 Women's College World Series

The 2018 Women's College World Series is scheduled for May 31-June 5/6 at USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium — OGE Energy Field in Oklahoma City. The finals are slated for June 4-5/6.

The eight-team tournament will determine the 37th national champion in Division I softball history and the 28th to claim the trophy in OKC. 

The eight programs to advance to the WCWS play in two four-team double-elimination brackets to narrow the field down to two. The final two teams then play in a best-of-three format to determine the national championship.
