(Associated Press)  --  The NCAA has named Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee as host schools for softball regionals.

That brings the postseason softball tournament to three states that have passed laws requiring athletes to compete in interscholastic sports according to their sex at birth.

Republican governors have signed bills banning transgender athletes from competing in intercollegiate sports in Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee and West Virginia.

The NCAA allows transgender women to compete if they have taken testosterone-suppressing drugs for at least a year.

The NCAA Board of Governors has warned that future hosting of NCAA events could be affected by state laws.
