The Big 12 Conference and the Oklahoma City All Sports Association have announced that the Big 12 Softball Championship will be reinstated and coming back to Oklahoma City beginning with the 2017 season.

“We are excited to welcome back the Big 12 Softball Championship to Oklahoma City, said All Sports Executive Director, Tim Brassfield. The Big 12 Softball Championship has had a long 15-year history here and we are thankful to the Big 12 Conference for bringing the event back to the ‘home’ of college softball.”
With the reinstatement of the Big 12 Softball Championship, it further demonstrates and solidifies Oklahoma City as ‘the’ major market of college softball.
