2019 NCAA Division 1 Softball Teams

Below are all 64 teams that have made the 2019 NCAA Division 1 Softball tournament. 32 teams received automatic bids either by being the regular season champions or winning the conference tournament while the other 32 are selected at-large by the Softball Committee. The Atlantic 10 (Fordham), American Athletic (South Florida), and Big 12 (Oklahoma) conference tournaments were not completed as a result of weather. In these three cases, the automatic bid went to the regular season champion.

In the sortable table below, the automatic bids are listed first followed by the at-large bids listed in order of conference. The records for each team and which regional they have been assigned to are provided as well. Note: the hosts for each regional have been marked with an asterisk in the table below.
