Where can I watch NCAA Men’s D1 basketball tournament? 

The NCAA Division 1 basketball tournament, popularly known as March Madness, has over fourteen venues across the country. See the March Madness schedule above to find the arena for each round. Tickets to the games are available via the official NCAA website. If you can’t make it to the venue, watch the game on TV or stream it online.  

To truly enjoy the March Madness vibe, consider watching the game with other fans at a sports bar or pub near you. Viewing parties are also common during the tournament, and many cities like NYC have pubs/bars that cater to the fans of top-tier teams. These sports hubs can get busy during the big games, so pre-plan your night out to avoid last-minute hassles. And unless you are not planning to leave the couch and watch the match on TV, book your parking spot before the game – especially near the popular arenas hosting March Madness games.
