Elite 8 Bracket: Printable PDF, blank and fillable for March Madness 2019

Did you know that when the NCAA Men’s tournament started 80 years ago this year, there was only eight teams in the entire field of teams? There wasn’t a selection show or even a Sweet Sixteen, that that initial 1939 tournament commenced with eight college programs in search of the March Madness championship.

Today the NCAA tournament is a intense schedule of approximately 52 games in six days, and even still we would only be at the Sweet Sixteen stage of the bracket. Speaking of which, the Sweet Sixteen is near completion. In honor of the final eight teams of the tournament we created a couple versions of the Elite Eight bracket so that fans of March Madness can view, download and print out.

Elite Eight Brackets: Printable in PDF, Blank

Listen between you and me, we’ve got an Elite 8 bracket that will satisfy like a Snickers bar. This blank and seeded version of the eight team bracket is available in three different formats that your printer will enjoy printing out. First here’s our eight team bracket with all teams on one side (though separated). Take a look and gander

On the other hand, here’s the more standard (and more popular) two-sided Elite 8 bracket you’re more used to seeing. It’s used more often because two sides makes it easier to differentiate visually the two “sides” of the bracket.

Print your favorite bracket layout in either one sided PDF or if you prefer the more-traditional two-sided PDF layout of the eight team bracket. You can save and print the full-size image in JPEG below. Here is the another eight-team bracket in PDF if you’re looking for another version to consider. These brackets are also good for other tournaments past March Madness. So feel free to use them for hockey, volleyball, soccer, softball, dodgeball, and other team sports tournaments.
