The world is facing so many changes in business and everyday life due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and the sports industry is no exception. Both the NBA and NHL seasons have been suspended. World ice skating championships have been called off completely. And now there are even doubts that the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo will still happen. 

At this time of the year, the NCAA Tournament, popularly known as March Madness, would have also been fully in works. 

March Madness is a single-elimination tournament played each spring in the United States. This year, the tournament has been canceled for the first time since 1939, leaving athletes and fans devastated. 

Despite the cancellation, we’re publishing our March Madness infographic to show our support and appreciation to the athletes who’ve spent endless hours to prepare for one of the best sporting events in the US.
