USA Softball

From 1965-2012, the World Championships were branded under the International Softball Federation (ISF). With the merger of the ISF and the International Baseball Federation (IBAF), the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) was created and officially rebranded the event to the WBSC Women's Softball World Championship from 2016-2018.

Following the 2018 World Championship, the event has been rebranded to the WBSC Women's Softball World Cup.
