Guests who come to campus on home football weekends have special opportunities to get a sneak peek inside some of the areas that are usually exclusive to Notre Dame football players and coaches. Both the Guglielmino Complex Open House and Friday Tunnel Tour are free and open to the public. Come get a taste of the history and tradition built by all of our Irish Greats!
Friday Tunnel Tour
10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Football Fridays (except during team walk-throughs)
Since 1931, every Notre Dame football team has walked down the same tunnel, to the same field before every home football game. On Fridays of football weekends, Game Day Operations and Athletics is proud to give every Irish fan the opportunity to walk the same fabled walk every Irish player has taken for the past 80 years. Come experience the North Tunnel of Notre Dame Stadium, take pictures with the field in the background, and feel the echoes waiting to be awoke.
Guglielmino Complex Open House
8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Football Fridays (limited access*)
The Guglielmino Complex provides the Notre Dame football team with one of the top facilities in the nation. Often referred to as “The Gug” (pronounced Goog), the state of the art facility houses the football practice week locker rooms, coaches’ offices and meeting rooms in addition to enhanced sports medicine, strength and conditioning and weight room equipment areas for all Notre Dame student athletes. To top it off the Gug houses various awards won by former Irish greats, such as Heisman trophies. On Football Fridays fans will have the opportunity to see these awards, as well as the National Championship trophy and other great Notre Dame memorabilia.
*Only the areas featuring the trophies and National Championship banners will be open to the public.
