March is a huge month in sports thanks to arguably the greatest sporting event there is – the NCAA basketball tournament! From filling out the brackets to watching 12-15 hours straight of basketball during the first week of the tournament, this event is always a hit among sports fans and especially gamblers. Both the men’s and women’s tournaments take place this month and that will take up most of the attention span of sports fan.

That isn’t all that is going on though as baseball returns from it’s long hiatus with Opening Day 2019. The Mariners and Athletics kick things off early this year with two games in Japan to start the season. That should be fun as Ichiro should be playing for the Mariners in front of his home country. The rest of the teams kick off the season on March 28.

There is also a ton of racing events this month from Formula One, Formula E, IndyCar, and NASCAR. Tons of races as well as tons of UFC action.

Plenty to watch in March as things are starting to pick up. Let’s take a look at the complete sports schedule for March 2019:


Baseball is back as the teams finish up spring training and the first games of the MLB season are played.

The season kicks off this year with the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics playing a two game series in Tokyo, Japan on March 20-21, followed by Opening Day.
