Some use pool play or double elimination, while others use single elimination.
In the United States, the fate of district winners varies widely from state to state. In some larger states such as New York, Florida and California, the district winners advance to one of many sectional tournaments. The winners of each sectional tournament then advance to a state or divisional tournament, currently held only in Texas and California, which closely resemble the state tournaments held in less densely populated states. Most smaller states lack competition at the sectional level and go straight from district to state tournaments. A handful of states are composed of only one district, and the district champion is the automatic state champion.

The international teams returned in 1976. )
The 16 teams are divided into two brackets, the United States Bracket and the International Bracket. Each team is then randomly assigned to one of two "pools" in their respective bracket. In the opening days of the tournament, the teams compete round robin within their own pool. The term round-robin describes correspondence to a single Address authored or signed by numerous individuals (as found in a Petition) The top two teams in each pool advance to the semifinal of their bracket, where the 1st place team from one pool competes against the 2nd place team from the other. The respective winners advance to play in either the United States or International Final. The U. S. champion and the International champion advance to compete in the Little League World Series Championship Game.

The current regional setup was established effective with the 2007 World Series, when Japan was split from the Asia Region into its own region, and the remainder of the Asia Region combined with the former Pacific Region to form the Asia-Pacific Region.
