2015 NCAA March Madness Contests for Canadians

Sports Betting Canadian Basketball MascotAs a Canadian that loves filling out brackets for March Madness it can quickly become discouraging when after you’ve filled out what you feel is a winning bracket in a contest with some great prizes, you decide to head over to the rules section and notice that because you are a Canadian resident, even if your bracket is perfect (and you’re sure at this time that it will be), you are not eligible to participate.

I’ve had this frusterating occurrence happen to me several times over the past few years and in order to help prevent it happening to any of my visitors I’ve made the list you’ll see below.  On this page you will find as close to a complete list as I could manage of free NCAA bracket contests that allow Canadians to enter and win.

It’s crazy how even some of the biggest contests online such as Yahoo, Scout.com and Bleacher Report, only accept Americans to enter their contests.

Anyways, enough complaining, there are still more than enough quality NCAA contests to keep us Canadians happy this year!

***If you know of any quality contests that I haven’t included, please drop me a line at sportsbettingcanadian@gmail.com.  I’d like to make this list as thorough as possible for my fellow Canadians.
