How (To Join)?

First, register online in the Starfish Bracket Challenge CBS Sports group.

The link to the 2020 CBS Sports group will be released in February 2020.

Once you've joined this group, make sure to complete a "bracket" to indicate your predictions starting on the evening of Sunday, March 15th (when brackets are revealed) and before 12 noon EST on Thursday, March 19th.

How (Much)?

While participation in our bracket group is free, a $20 donation to The Starfish Foundation is strongly encouraged.
