Regional Playoffs

2019 NCBA DI Regional Playoffs

The 2019 NCBA DI Regional Tournaments will take place May 10th-12th.  The NCBA makes every effort to host each regional tournament in a location that is neutrally geographic for all teams that make up the region.  Sites do change from year to year, so be sure to check back often as location and tournament updates will be posted as soon as specifics are finalized.

2019 NCBA Regional Playoff Format

The NCBA has eight DI Regional Tournaments each year that represent one of the eight geographic regions that make up the NCBA Division I.  The eight Regions are the Great Lakes, Gulf Coast, Mid-America, Mid-Atlantic, North Atlantic, Northern Pacific, South Atlantic and the Southern Pacific.  There are 4-teams that make up each regional tournament.  With each Region being split up into 3-conferences, each conference winner gets an automatic bid and the final team is an at-large selection.  Factors when deciding the at-large selection consist of, but are not limited to the following:

-Did the team finish in at least 2nd place in their conference?

-How did the team perform against their conference or regional champion?

-Is the team on probation?

-Has the team forfeited any games?

The four teams that compete in each regional will play in a double elimination tournament with the winner being crowned the Regional Champion.  Each Regional Champion will move onto the NCBA DI World Series to face off against the other regional champions  to compete for a National Championship.
