The Softball Championship is finally here and soon more than 78,000 fans will gather to cheer on their favorite teams. While the USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium is under renovation during the 2019 NCAA Women’s College World Series and the venue will be receiving upgrades, collegiate softball will still be great in Oklahoma City this year.  Here’s a guide that will help you know what to expect from the time you arrive at the field to the last inning.

1. Tickets

Haven’t bought tickets yet? The NCAA Ticket Exchange has got you covered. Fans can buy or sell tickets from other fans through the exchange, making it easy to attend one or multiple games throughout the week.

Tip: This is a useful tool when your favorite team makes the final game and you don’t have tickets yet.

2. Parking

Parking at the stadium will be limited, so head to Remington Park Racing Casino just west of the stadium and secure free shuttle transportation. Fans can park in the Raceway parking lot, located just off of Northwest 50th Street, 1/4 mile west of the softball complex and catch the shuttle on Eastern and Grand Boulevard.  The shuttle bus runs every 10 minutes each game day. View the route here. Don’t want the hassle of parking? Use a ridesharing service for an effortless arrival and pick-up process.  

Tip: Park your car nearby and take Uber or Lyft to the stadium entrance.

3. Inside the Stadium

While the USA Softball Hall of Fame Complex is under renovation, there will be little to no shade inside the stadium, so bring your sunscreen and enjoy the sunshine. Also, all oversized bags, backpacks, duffel bags and diaper bags will not be permitted. Although most small bags are allowed inside venue, bringing a clear bag is encouraged for expedited entry.

Tip: Travel light and stay hydrated.

Have some down time between games? Make your way around OKC's Bricktown Entertainment District where attractions, adventure, restaurants and nightlife are all steps away from each other. Catch a ride on the Bricktown Water Taxi or hop on the all-new modern streetcar that services six miles, stopping at the city’s most popular districts. With multiple walkable districts, bike rental options and scooters on almost every corner, you can discover all that there is to do in OKC outside of Women’s College World Series.  Bring your team spirit and may the best team win!
