The Shamrock Series is Notre Dame's home-away-from-home game series! In 2009, the first game of the was played in San Antonio. The series traveled to New York in 2010, Washington, D.C. in 2011, Chicago in 2012, Texas in 2013, Indianapolis in 2014, Boston in 2015, and in 2016 we headed back to San Antonio.
The 2017 schedule will feature seven home games for the first time since 2010, as the Irish take a one-year break from their Shamrock Series games.
"In 2017, the first year in which we will compete in the renovated stadium, we thought it was important to maximize the opportunity for our fans to attend a home game," said Jack Swarbrick, Notre Dame's vice president and James E. Rohr Director of Athletics. "We look forward to restoring the Shamrock Series tradition in 2018 and the years beyond."
The Shamrock Series presents fans with an entire weekend of festivities on the road, though strives to convey our home Game Day experience! Fans have the opportunity to explore a new city and cheer for the Fighting Irish while attending Shamrock Series activities that may include a pep rally or band concert at an iconic location, Mass, service projects, academic and spiritual events, run the Shamrock Series 5K, join others at Fan Fest, 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 and home game traditions in an incredibly unique and unforgettable way.
In addition to the events surrounding the Shamrock Series game, the venues in which these games are played emanate a lifetime of memories for fans while visiting iconic stadiums that have included football and baseball venues. The Irish have competed in these amazing venues and homes of famed athletic teams: 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)!
