Site Tour - March Madness Bracket Pool
Welcome Skip To Section...  
Welcome to the Site Tour for March Madness Bracket Pools at www.simplysportsware.com. This guide should be read by anyone that wishes to either create or join a March Madness Bracket Pool (or Sweet 16 pool) on our site. The only difference between the bracket pool and Sweet 16 pool is that the Sweet 16 pool starts in round 3, once the number of teams alive has been reduced to 16 teams. Please report any errors to support@simplysportsware.com.

The pool is run completely online, so there is no need for any software to run on your computer (except for an Internet browser). The format of this pool type is the typical bracket pool whereby each member selects all games through the end of the tournament once the final brackets have been announced on Selection Sunday. Scores and Live Standings are updated every 30 seconds and the official pool standings are updated immediately after each game completes.

Poolsters love having options available when it comes to pool rules, and we provide many customization options that will gear to your desired pool setup. If you would like to suggest an option that we do not currently support, please send an email to support@simplysportsware.com.

We encourage you to try out our free trial period which runs through the first 2 rounds of the tournament, with no obligations. Our hosting fee for March Madness Bracket Pools starts at $0.75 per member for the first 50 members. If you hosted a pool with us last year, your hosting fee will remain the same as it was last year.
