The 2012 Big 12 Soccer Championship will take place Oct. 31 and Nov. 2 and 4, 2012, at Blossom Soccer Stadium in San Antonio. This marks the 16th consecutive year that the University of Texas and San Antonio Sports Foundation will co-host the event at the venue. In 1996, the first league soccer championship was at the Anheuser-Busch Conference and Sports Centre in St. Louis, Mo.
The top eight teams based on conference results determined by a point system qualify for the Big 12 Championship. A squad gets three points for each conference win and one point for each conference tie.
This season marks the 14th year that eight schools will participate in the league championship. For the first three years a six-team field was utilized for the postseason event. The winner of the Big 12 Championship receives the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.
