ESPN College GameDay Information

Posted: Updated:

The ESPN College Gameday crew has been in town since Wednesday and began building their set on Thursday. Broadcasting at the corner of 3rd and Broadway in Downtown Fargo will be Friday and Saturday.

The set takes an entire day to build and get "TV ready," with a crew of 75-100 people making the production happen.

Thousands of fans are expected to show up both Friday and Saturday to watch the broadcast in downtown and police are warning people if they don't have to be downtown they should avoid the area. Several streets and parking restrictions are also in place while the broadcast is in town.

Friday

  • 2nd Ave. N. will be closed from the west side of Broadway to 5th St. N.
  • No parking signs will be posted which will prohibit parking on Friday evening on 4th Ave. N. between Roberts St. N. and 5th St. N. and on Broadway from 4th Ave. N. to the rail road tracks (5th Ave. N.).

Saturday

  • 4th Ave. N. will be closed from Roberts St. N. to 5th St. N., and Broadway will be closed in the 400 Block (4th Ave. N. to the railroad tracks). These roads will remain closed until the conclusion of the Saturday event.

Because of traffic restrictions those wishing to attend the event are encouraged to take free shuttles leaving every five minutes. The shuttles will run 5:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. and pick up/drop off at four locations.
