Closing BBQ and Softball Tournament Sign Up

Any SXSW Platinum or Music registrant can sign up to play in the SXSW Softball Tournament. Performing artists with performing artist wristbands can sign up and play as well; one player per band, please. There are three rounds of games: quarterfinals, semifinals, and a final that starts at 4:00pm, with live announcers and a rendition of “Take Me Out To The Ball Game.”

We recommend you bring your own glove, if you have one, but we have a lot of loaners as well, which you can sign out with proper ID.

IMPORTANT: TO REGISTER FOR A TEAM IN ADVANCE, YOU MUST EMAIL BY MONDAY, MARCH 4. AFTER THAT DATE, YOU MUST REGISTER IN PERSON AT THE CONVENTION CENTER ON THURSDAY, MARCH 14, OR FRIDAY, MARCH 15.

Email softball@sxsw.com with your preference of team:

(SXSW Staff and SXSW Volunteer teams will be filled from within)

Our tournament staff will reconfirm with you closer to the event, and are available to answer any questions you may have. The in-person Player Registration Table is on the 4th floor of the Austin Convention Center next to the Day Stage, and occurs from 1-5pm on Thursday and Friday during the Music Conference.
