Dear March Madness Fans, 


Welcome to CFHU's 28th Annual Online March Madness NCAA College Basketball Tournament!


Started as a small initiative in 1995, the March Madness Tournament has raised more than $1 million and has been successful in sending over 1,000 Canadian students through scholarships to fulfill their dream of studying at Hebrew U!


It is thanks to the incredible generosity of our all-star sponsors that we have been able to run this alumnus-driven sports tournament for close to three decades.


New this year! If you refer at least one new player who registers for either the regular March Madness tournament and/or the combo (regular + sweet 16) your name will be entered into a draw to win a pair of fantastic hockey tickets (in Section 108, seats 3 & 4) at the Scotiabank Arena for the following games:


  • April 2, 2023 - Maple Leafs vs. Detroit Red Wings

  • April 4, 2023 - Maple Leafs vs. Columbus Blue Jackets


(Please email when you have the name of the new participant)


Do you have what it takes to predict a perfect bracket? Register here and you could win up to $12,000 in prize money! Click here to register for March Madness 2023.


Proceeds raised from the 2023 Madness Tournaments support the Einstein Legacy Student Scholarships at the Hebrew University which include:


Good luck and thanks for your support!
