Shamrock Series History


The Shamrock Series is Notre Dame’s home-away-from-home game series, which began in 2009 when the first game of the series was played in San Antonio. The series went on to New York (2010), Washington, D.C. (2011), Chicago (2012), Dallas (2013), Indianapolis (2014), Boston, and in 2016 we are heading back to San Antonio.

The Shamrock Series presents fans with an entire weekend of festivities that may include the Friday Football Luncheon, a traditional Friday night pep rally at an iconic location, Mass, service projects, a pre-game concert, academic and spiritual events, and so much more. Since the first Shamrock Series, we have seen Irish fans come out in full force in each city to take part in the Shamrock Series weekend events. The series offers fans the opportunity to experience Notre Dame Football in an incredibly unique and unforgettable way.

In addition to the events surrounding a Shamrock Series game, the venues in which these games are played are a popular draw. The Irish have competed in the Alamodome (Alamo Bowl), Yankee Stadium (New York Yankees), FedEx Field (Washington Redskins), Soldier Field (Chicago Bears), AT&T Stadium (Dallas Cowboys), Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis Colts), and Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox)!

The Irish were victorious with a 19-16 win over Boston College at Fenway Park!
