NCAA Expands WCWS to Nine DaysNews
Elimination Saturday is no more. And college softball is better for it.
The Women’s College World Series schedule will expand by two days, the NCAA announced Wednesday. The format change will go into effect beginning with the 2022 season.
The change involves two components.
- Teams that lose on Day 1 will no longer need to play a doubleheader on Day 3 to survive.
- Teams that advance to the championship series will have a day off before the best-of-three finals begin.
