Spring time, sweet, sweet Spring time is here, finally! The snow melts from the tops of mountains, filling rivers with fresh water, and all greens with colors emerge from the ground. People shed their winter wears in order to enjoy the sweet breeze of Spring. We’re talking about birds & bees, honey & trees… The only thing surpassing the natural splendor of this seasonal shift is March Madness, baby!

CocoVail Presents: March Madness in Barcelona

Are you looking for a place to watch NCAA games in Barcelona?

We’ll broadcast all of the March NCAA games live.

Until then, get your game face ready. We’re excited for these games and even more excited to be your home of March Madness in Barcelona in 2019!

What is March Madness?

The NCAA, National Collegiate Athletic Association, puts on this glorious event each and every year for the world to enjoy. March Madness started in 1939, and it’s basically a national holiday at this point.

March Madness is 3 weekends of basketball with 64 teams in a win or go home tournament format. All it takes is 6 wins in a row to win it all. It can’t be that hard, right?

Well, it’s actually considered one of the most unpredictable sports contests year after year. Filling out a perfect bracket is basically impossible, but it’s really fun to give it a try.

These college ballers leave it all on the court, and that fire provided some amazing sports moments over the past few decades. Here are some of the best March Madness moments ever!

While the NCAA is currently shrouded with controversy at the moment, we won’t get into that. We are not sports pundits, and that’s not really relevant to this matter. However, since some of us at CocoVail are tied to the University of Arizona, we have to mention that Sean Miller basically made ESPN and the FBI look super ridiculous. This pleases us greatly. #beardown

On another note, it finally happened! A #16 seed finally beat a #1 seed for the first time ever in 2018. Hats off to UMBC (University of Maryland-Baltimore County) for their victory over Virginia! #amazing
