Little League World Series 2016: Bracket, schedule, teams and scores

16 teams advanced to the double-elimination tournament in Williamsport, Penn, with New York winning the 2016 championship.

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The 16-team field for the 2016 Little League World Series is set, with eight teams from the United States and eight teams from the rest of the world angling to be the best group of 11- and 12-year-old baseball players around.


The 16 teams were split into two brackets — United States and International — that battled for 30 games scheduled over 11 days at two stadiums beginning Thursday in Williamsport, Penn.

The tournament is double elimination on each side of the bracket, with the United States winner and International winner playing a single game for the Little League World Series championship on Sunday, Aug. 28. The team from Endwell, New York beat Seoul, South Korea to win New York's first title since 1964.

In addition to the 30 games, there are also two consolation games — to be played on Aug. 22-23 — between the first four teams to lose twice in the tournament.


International teams have won the Little League World Series 36 times, and United States teams have won 33 times. An international team has won in each of the last four years. Japan won in 2015 and has won four times in the last six years.

Before 2016, the last U.S. team to win was from Huntington Beach, Calif. in 2011.
