The Big 12 Conference is adding women’s lacrosse and beach volleyball, they announced on Thursday.
This move will go into effect in 2024-2025, as the Big 12’s total sponsored sports increases to 25, including 15 women’s sports.
“Beach volleyball and women’s lacrosse are both experiencing growth and popularity on a national level,” said Commissioner Brett Yormark. “The additions will allow incoming and current members to compete for national championships under the Big 12 umbrella while expanding the league’s footprint across new sports.”
The Big 12’s beach volleyball teams will include Arizona, Arizona State, TCU and Utah, while Big 12 women’s lacrosse will feature Arizona State, Colorado and Cincinnati.
Additional details surrounding the addition of these two schools will be announced at a later date.
