IOWA CITY, Iowa — The Pat McAfee Show is broadcasting live from the University of Iowa on Friday, March 22, to help tipoff NCAA Women’s Basketball March Madness. 

Friday’s show, hosted by UI’s Recreational Services, will air live on ESPNEWS, ESPN+, and The Pat McAfee Show YouTube channel from 11 a.m. to approximately 2 p.m. (CT) at the UI Field House, located on the west side of campus near UIHC and Slater, Rienow, Petersen, and Hillcrest residence halls.

Fans of the show are encouraged to attend. Admission is free, but capacity is limited to the first 2,500 fans in attendance. This is standing room only, non-ticketed event. Fans will be required to enter the facility through the southeast main doors with event access beginning at 8:30 a.m.
