The NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament is a tournament that brings together 68 university teams that play several games to see who will be the champion. The tournament is organized by rounds and in direct elimination matches. The draw (the famous bracket on which bets are made in the United States) is divided (with this nomenclature since 2007) into four regions: East, South, West and Midwest. From each region, with the matches in pre-selected neutral venues, a regional champion emerges who advances to the Final Four, , the semifinals and final from which the champion emerges and which is celebrated, as a grand finale, the first goal April week.

       Why is it so popular?

The event is very popular due to various factors, among which is the format it presents.
