A $50 Starbucks gift card is up for grabs for a fan who can fill out the perfect college men’s volleyball postseason bracket.
Off the Block announced Tuesday that it will reward the gift card to the participant of its annual bracket challenge who can successfully predict every match result from the four conference tournaments and the six-team NCAA Tournament.
The college men’s volleyball postseason begins with the six-team Conference Carolinas Tournament on Wednesday. In addition, the eight-team MPSF Tournament and the seven-team MIVA Tournament begin next weekend, while the four-team EIVA Tournament starts in late-April.
The four conference tournament champions and two at-large bids will advance to the NCAA Tournament beginning April 29 in Chicago.
Bracket challenge participants can fill out their bracket online at challonge.com or at the bottom of this post. Before filling out a bracket, individuals will be asked to create an account on Challonge. Creating an account on Challonge is free and takes less than a minute to complete.
Along with the perfect bracket challenge, the individual who has the highest combined score on all five brackets — Conference Carolinas Tournament, MPSF Tournament, MIVA Tournament, EIVA Tournament and NCAA Tournament — will receive a $25 gift card to Starbucks or an approved eatery of the winner’s choice.
In the event there are multiple perfect brackets, the grand prize will be equally divided among the winners. Also, if there is a first-place tie in the non-perfect bracket challenge, one contestant from the first-place brackets will be randomly selected for the prize. The winner will also be notified via their Challonge account.
This contest is organized by Off the Block and was created independently of the EIVA, MIVA, MPSF and NCAA.
Brackets for the Conference Carolinas, EIVA, MIVA, MPSF and NCAA Tournaments can be submitted up until the start of the first match in each tournament.
The Conference Carolinas Tournament portion of the bracket challenge is currently open, while the other conference tournament brackets and NCAA Tournament bracket will open once their tournament fields are finalized in the upcoming weeks.
