BracketMaker has been around since 1999 and in more than two decades we've never asked for help ... until now! That's because we have plans for a website makeover (including better support for mobile devices) and tons of new features and overall improvements. We want to do more than simply sustain the service and support.

If you've been using BracketMaker for a while or even if you're new here, you may have noticed there are no advertisements. Our prior experience with ads was that they are not just annoying, but they also potentially consume too much CPU power or memory, and can even be a security risk. Plus, many people use ad blockers.

We aim to sustain and grow our service via other means such as event registration and ticketing fees (work in progress), branding (see VirtualBrackets), custom feature requests, crowdfunding and donations from generous patrons, and maybe a select few product placements and sponsors if they're a good fit.

If you're interested in any of the above, email or use our Contact form.
