Have a variety of snacks and drinks

Be prepared to jump between channels
March Madness is a big tournament, which means a lot of games are happening at once! Before the party, check your local listing guide, or this 2022 game day guide, to prepare a list of all the networks that are airing games. Creating a print off or written key will help your guests easily flip between channels, this ensures everyone can watch their favorite teams in action!
The best way to stream March Madness online without cable is with Hulu + Live TV. A membership gets you everything that comes with regular Hulu, plus live TV channels including CBS, TBS, TNT, and TruTV, as well as free access to Disney+ and ESPN+
Keep guests entertained
Not everyone at the party will be a basketball fan, but creating other games and entertainment will keep everyone engaged and laughing! Provide your guests with a basketball bingo card, where they can tally off everything from “three point shot” to “dancing mascot”!
There are also word searches and March Madness trivia games that you can play at halftime.
Make your own bracket
Along with the individual brackets you created for your pool, create a large bracket using poster board so your guests can follow along with the tournament! You can add scores, color-code based on team colors and more!
