Wantland Stadium, University of Central Oklahoma


The stadium has permanent seating to accommodate 10,000.

OSSAA to discuss a vote on  three year contract to host 11-man football state championships at Wantland Stadium.  If the contract is approved, the likely dates for games this year would be December 4-5 for Classes 6A-I to 3A and Dec. 12 for Classes 2A and A.

Wantland Stadium, if approved is on the campus of the University of Oklahoma; it will become the site of the association's 11-man football championships for Classes 6A-I to A championships for the next three years.

OSSAA have expressed the need to have a centralized championship site, something the Oklahoma Football Coaches Association (OFCA) along with numerous others have pursued since 2017.

I remember the show.  Kinda liked it.  Quirky.

Shame they didn't have brains enough to film locally.

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Oklahoma Sooners season opener

86,112 seat Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium (Norman); Saturday, September 12, University of Oklahoma Sooner entertain the Missouri State Bears.   Social distancing limited ticket sales to 22,700.

Your typical crowd in Norman on game day attracts 87,000 fans.  Oklahoma football has played before 129 consecutive sellouts at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium (21 years). That dates back to the beginning of the 1999 season.

NCAA Oklahoma 2022 - 2026

                                            Chesapeake Energy Arena will host first- and second-round games of the NCAA men's basketball
                                              tournament in 2026. [DAVE MORRIS/THE OKLAHOMAN]


On a day we learned eight NCAA regionals and championships will come to our state from 2023-26 — in addition to the Women’s College World Series, which OKC has locked in for the long term — there was jubilation in many locales. OSU landed three events in Stillwater. Ditto for OU in Norman. Tulsa even scored a big event, the wrestling championships in 2023.

But nothing was bigger than OKC getting that basketball regional.--Oklahoman, October 15, 2020

NCAA events

On Wednesday, the NCAA announced sites for most of its 2023-26 championships and regionals. In addition to the Women's College World Series, a permanent championship held in Oklahoma City, the state received eight events.

Here's a look at what will be coming to Oklahoma in the coming years:

Event, Location


     2022 Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Championship, Stillwater/OSU Cross Country Course

     2023 Wrestling Championship, Tulsa/BOK Center

     2023 Women’s Gymnastics Regional, Norman/Lloyd Noble Center

     2023 Men’s Golf Regional, Norman/Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club

     2024 Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships, Stillwater/Greenwood Tennis Center

     2025 Women’s Golf Regional, Norman/Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club

     2025 Men’s Golf Regional, Stillwater/Karsten Creek

     2026 Men’s Basketball First and Second Rounds, Oklahoma City/Chesapeake Energy Arena



                                 The new upper decks of the USA Softball Hall Of Fame Stadium make it "the best softball facility bar none,”
                                  says USA Softball.   CEO Craig Cress.  Sarah Phipps/The Oklahoman]
