A new ballpark name and a new format will hit the College World Series this summer. And now fans have a little more details on game times and tickets.

Instead of a Saturday start, the series will start Friday, June 17, a move announced last January. The first six days of the CWS will have two games apiece with start times at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. The second day of bracket finals, if needed, will be Thursday, June 23, with the times to be determined.

Group tickets will be available Feb. 14 and sales for new season tickets will begin in mid- to late-March. Single-game reserved seats will go on sale Tuesday, April 19, at 10 a.m. at During the series, any available tickets will be accessible through that site and the Charles Schwab Field box office.

Reserved seating in the outfield will also remain.

That was changed last season from general admission due to the pandemic. In a press release Wednesday, CWS of Omaha, Inc. said they received positive feedback from fans, so decided to keep the ticket designation.

Ticket packages are already available on

Also as part of the previously announced schedule change, the championship series will run Saturday through Monday instead of Monday to Wednesday, and shorten the CWS schedule by one day. Saturday and Monday’s games start at 6 p.m. and Sunday’s at 2 p.m. All three will be on ESPN, with the previous games shown on ESPN or ESPN2.

The format in 2022 is the same format the series had from 2003 to 2007.
