Little League Softball World Series Schedule: Full Bracket, Times, Channels for Each Game 2022

The future of softball makes the pilgrimage to Greenville, NC for the 2022 Little League Softball World Series.

Much like its Williamsport baseball counterpart, the tournament has seen some changes since the last time it hosted teams from the United States and abroad.

The most significant of these changes is that the East and West regions have been split into two. Now the East region contains two regions (the Mid-Atlantic region and the New England region), while the West region consists of the Northwest and West regions.

This change allowed 12 teams to compete in this year’s tournament, as opposed to the ten that have competed in the past. More action for those doing the hike to Greenville.

The tournament tended to be dominated by American teams. An international team has won the competition only once – Puerto Rico in 2001. Despite this, the game continues to grow both domestically and internationally, largely due to the intrigue that arises from watching the iconic softball competition itself.

Here’s everything you need to know about the 2022 Little League Softball World Series, including bracket information and the TV schedule.

Little League Softball World Series Bracket 2022

There are 12 teams participating in the Little League Softball World Series 2022. It’s a double-elimination tournament, which means teams still have a chance of reaching the finals if they lose their first game.

The larger bracket is split into two different brackets: the purple bracket and the orange bracket. Teams emerging from the purple and orange brackets then compete against the winner of both elimination brackets to determine which teams will compete for the crown of Little League Softball World Series Champions. The losers of the two semi-finals meet in a consolation match for third place.

Every team that travels to Greenville plays at least three games. You can download a PDF version of the tournament table from the LLSWS official website.
