In just a few weeks, the craziness of college basketball’s March Madness will sweep the country. Once again, this event will be especially exciting for our soccer club, because it will serve as one of Unified FC’s biggest fundraising events of the year! Not only will players, coaches, parents, friends and families be able to compete against each other for cash prizes, but at the same time we can raise significant funds for our Club to buy new equipment and apparel! In previous years, the money raised was used to purchase soccer pennies with our Unified FC logo, soccer balls and cones for all the teams to use in practices.
Through CBS Sportsline, we will have a group set up for our Unified FC soccer club. Any one wanting to participate will fill out as many basketball brackets as they wish, and can recruit friends, family, neighbors and co-workers to join in the fun. As those people who participated in the fundraiser last year will confirm, you do not need to know anything about college basketball to have a chance to win. Not only is it fun following your brackets and teams, you will be helping the Club at the same time!
We will be awarding prizes to the Top 3 winners with a percentage of the cash pool as follows:
- 1st Place = 70%
- 2nd Place = 20%
- 3rd Place = 10%
The first place winner may take home some great soccer merchandise as well as the money winnings (~$150 last year) and bragging rights! The more entries received, the higher the cash prizes will be! In addition, the players who recruit the most participants will earn prizes as well.
Specific details on completing your brackets will be provided closer to the time of the tournament. For now, you simply need to sign up using the form below and submit $10 for each bracket you wish to complete no later than Thursday, March 30th. Brackets will be released after Selection Sunday on March 12th. Our Group Name this year is Unified FC 2017. Please be sure to fill out your brackets under this Group, and not under one from any previous years you have participated.
Anyone that would prefer to skip filling out brackets, and simply like to donate $10 or more to the annual fundraiser can do that as well. Just connect with your team managers to pass along your donations. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our Tournament Manager, Greg Douglas, at (816) 584-1566.
