Tournament Format

The NCAA March Madness has been played since 1939 and ever since its beginning been regarded as the most prestigious college tournament where the best teams from all over the US come together to fight for the national championship trophy. UCLA is the most successful team with 11 titles, though the last one came back in 1995. UCLA had its prime back in the 60’s and 70’s when they managed to win the NCAA March Madness 10 times.
In recent years, Villanova (3 titles), UConn (4 titles) and Duke (5 titles) are among the most successful teams in the March Madness. The challenge and great difficulty of winning the tournament is obvious when looking at previous champions as there’s rarely any time that has managed to defend a champions title for two consecutive years.

The tournament is played through four different stages. First, all 69 teams will feature in the First Four-stage. This is the first elimination round which leads the winning teams into the next round, the First and Second Rounds. In the First and Second Round the teams will be divided into four regions with 16 teams in each group. The top seeded team in each region will play the 16th-seeded team, the 2nd-seeded team takes on the 15th-seeded team and so on.
The teams that advance from the First and Second Round will later feature in the Regional semifinals and finals, also known as the Sweet Sixteen and the Elite Eight. Further, the winners of each region will proceed to the Final Four which is the last round before the two final contestants go up against each other in the final of the NCAA March Madness 2022.
