Little League World Series schedule: Full bracket, times, channels for every 2022 LLWS game

The stars of tomorrow take the field at Williamsport, Pennsylvania, today at the 2022 Little League World Series. This year’s iteration represents the 75th anniversary of the competition. And it should be a doozy, with international teams slated to participate for the first time since 2019.

Much remains the same. But there are a few new wrinkles in the tournament, namely that it now includes 20 teams as opposed to the 16-team format the LLWS has employed for much of its existence. That means fans should be treated to more hits, more strikeouts, more web gems and more joyous moments from the iconic tourney than ever before.

It should be lively atmosphere in Williamsport. With spectators allowed back into the ballpark, there should be more eyes than ever on the action. The mossy hillsides of Lamade Stadium are expected to be packed with viewers, all hoping to catch of glimpse of the sport’s best young talent.

Here is everything you need to know about the 2022 Little League World Series, including a full TV schedule and bracket for every game of the tournament.

Little League World Series bracket 2022

Twenty teams will participate in the double-elimination tournament to figure out which place has the best little league team in the world. That means teams that lose the first game of the tournament will still have a chance to compete for the title.

Each team will play at least three games, with the losing teams from each round going in the elimination bracket and the winning teams from each round advancing in the winner’s bracket. The winner of the United States championship and international championship will face off against one another in a one-game, winner-take-all final.

Meanwhile, the teams that faced defeat in the US and international championships will meet in the consolidation third-place game.

A PDF of the tournament bracket is available on the LLWS website. The tournament schedules and scores from each game of the tournament can be found below.
