Each poll will open at 12 p.m. for 24 hours, with the winner advancing to the next round until an overall winner is decided. Schneider’s favorite facility championship match-up will be the same day as the NCAA Division 1 men’s basketball championship game.

We’ve seeded the 20 primary facilities in Schneider’s nationwide facility network in order based on total number of parking spaces (e.g. #1 seed Gary, IN, has the most parking), and we’ll update results throughout the month.

Championship Preview

The championship match-up is set in our Orange Mania Schneider Facility Faceoff: #4 seed Harrisburg and #3 seed West Memphis. Both facilities had to knock off higher seeds in the semifinals— which were the first two upsets in the tournament based on original seeding.

How they got here:

Harrisburg coasted through its first two match-ups, beating Columbus 79% to 21% and Dallas 67% to 33%, but the semifinal came down to the wire. Harrisburg edged out the #1 overall seed, Gary, 52% to 48%.

West Memphis has coasted through all of its match-ups, defeating Shrewsbury 83% to 17%, Indianapolis 63% to 37% and #2 seed, Laredo, 76% to 24%.
