Is March the Best Month for Sports?

The answer to this title is simply yes. There are many other months that are very good times for sports, but March just has it all.


To start with the obvious, March madness is the marquee sport event in the month. The now 68 team tournament is not all that is offered by college basketball though. The conference championships throughout the country in early March can be just as or even more excited than the tournament.

And lets not forget about the pro sports.

The NFL is not in season at this time, yet it is one of the most covered sports on ESPN currently because free agency is about to start, the draft is coming up and the combines is going on.

The MLB is also starting spring training during the month of March. So if you are a baseball fan you probably wait all winter for spring training to start ultimately leading up to opening day.

If you are a golfer, early season PGA golf is starting with the Masters not far behind. Also this is a month where a lot of parts of the country start to get spring type weather that allows the people to get back on the course.


This year in March we have also had a UFC event, though the main fight was called off days before the actual event. The two fighters on what ended up being the main event got booed during their performance as well as there was a lot of waiting. Nonetheless, we had the event.

There is no other month with this much going on in the world of sports.From college tournaments, to playoff races, to drafts, to preseason starting, the month of March truly has it all and is the most exciting and hectic month in sports.
