The Bonobos Bracket Challenge: Work With a Sports Legend & Win Big

It’s almost that time of the year again, March Madness. Selection Sunday will air tomorrow night and the lucky 68 teams from all over the nation will be announced. With Selection Sunday comes the annual bracket extravaganza. College basketball fans filling out brackets and predicting the outcome of the tournament. Some do it just for bragging rights, while most do it for a nice prize to take home. Bonobos is offering the chance to fill out that the same old bracket, with a new twist.

Tomorrow, Bonobos is launching the “Pro-Am Bracket Challenge.” This isn’t your everyday bracket contest. Bonobos is giving fans the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to team up with a sports legend to create their bracket and win prizes.

How it works:

1. Register your bracket from March 16 (after the Selection Sunday show), to before March 20th at 12 p.m. at Bonobos by clicking here. As always, it is free to sign up and play.

2. Without any knowledge of the Pros’ bracket picks, select one sports legend to be your partner. Choose wisely, once you have picked one, there’s no going back to change it.

Sports legends include: Baseball Hall of Famer Rollie Fingers, six-time hot dog eating champion Takeru Kobayashi, Soccer Hall of Famer Marceo Balboa, former Guinness World-Records holder for longest paper airplane throw Stephen Kreiger, and 800 pound sumo wrestler Emanuel Yarbrough.

3. Fill out your bracket and submit it before the deadline.

4. Like all bracket challenges, the person with the highest score wins it all. However, remember that your score will be a combination of the performance from your picks and your partner’s bracket.

5. Win.

Grand Prizes:
1st Place- Two tickets for the 2015 NCAA Tournament Final Four, $1,000 in Bonobos store credit, and a signed bracket from the sports legends
2nd Place- $500 in Bonobos store credit
3rd Place- $250 in Bonobos store credit
…and other additional prizes
