The Big 12 has extended its agreement through the 2028 season to host the Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship at Globe Life Field in Arlington. With this extension, the Big 12 remains the only Conference to crown its postseason champion in a Major League Baseball stadium, as well as in a retractable roof facility.
“The Big 12 is thrilled to announce our Baseball Championship will be staying at Globe Life Field through 2028,” said Big 12 Commissioner Brett Yormark. “Through this extension, we will host our Baseball Championship at a world-class, climate-controlled venue in our own backyard. We are grateful for the support and partnership of REV Entertainment and the Texas Rangers.”
"We are excited that the Big 12 Baseball Championship will remain at Globe Life Field for the next several years," said Sean Decker, President of REV Entertainment. “We are honored to partner with one of the premier baseball conferences in the country, and we look forward to hosting Big 12 teams and their passionate fans for years to come."
Arlington has hosted the Big 12 Baseball Championship four times, each year attracting over 96,000 fans and representing the four highest attendances for the event since 2002. The 14,673 fans who witnessed TCU’s 12-5 victory over Oklahoma State were the most of any conference title game in college baseball during the 2023 season.
Globe Life Field opened in 2020 and has hosted the Big 12 Championship each year since 2022. The facility hosted the 2020 World Series, and is slated to host the MLB All-Star Game in 2024.
The 2024 Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship is set for May 21-25 at Globe Life Field. Ticket information will be available in early 2024.
