2013 March Madness Contests List for Canadians

Final Four Atlanta March MadnessI know that Canadians are huge followers of NCAA basketball and get just as geared up for March Madness as Americans.  That being said there are far fewer March Madness bracket contests available to Canadian residents because many American companies that run free or paid contests only allow American residents to participate.  It can be difficult for Canadians to find March Madness bracket contests where they are eligible.

I’m a Canadian and I know all too well about this problem.  For this reason I’ve made a list of March Madness contests that do allow Canadians to participate.  I’ve broken the contests up into free and paid (or some kind of requirement) contests so you can have as many chances as possible to win some solid prizes this March Madness.

I should note that I got quite a bit of this information from the SportsBetListings.com March Madness contests page (if you are American I suggest checking it out).

I will be adding more contests every day, so check back often.
