[4/18/2017] Fukuoka could get extra bracket in 2018 Summer Koshien

The 100th Summer Koshien next year could feature two schools from Fukuoka, as part of a special rule to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Summer Koshien. In the past, six brackets (Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa, Aichi, Osaka, Hyogo) were added to the 80th (1998) and 90th (2008) tournaments.

Fukuoka is a large region that has been highly competitive. 134 high schools competed for one spot in last year’s Summer Koshien. Two high schools from Fukuoka made it to the Spring Koshien this year for the first time in twelve years and both managed to advance to the quarterfinals.
