Washington D.C. Weekend Itinerary

The Notre Dame Football “Home away from Home” game in Washington D.C. is right around the corner when Notre Dame travels to FedEx Field to play Maryland. This is the third consecutive year when Notre Dame is going on the road to play a home game in a different city across the country. We are excited as a University to be able to have Washington D.C. and Fed Ex Field be the host for our home game for the 2011 season. The itinerary, of events that are taking place over the weekend in D.C. has been finalized.

Some of the features for the weekend include:

Football Friday Luncheon – Hosted by the Notre Dame Club of Washington D.C., featuring Coach Kelly and guest speakers: Joe Theisman, Coley O’Brien, and Terry Hanratty.
Tickets are on sale now!!

Pep Rally on National Mall – The Notre Dame Football Pep Rally will be held on the National Mall Friday night. Come out and cheer on Coach Kelly and a few players from the 2011 Team as they get ready to beat Maryland on Saturday.
This event is free and open to the public.

Mass at St. Matthew’s Cathedral – Come join us at St. Matthew’s Cathedral as Fr. John Jenkins, C.S.C., celebrates mass in Washington D.C. on game day morning at 10:00am.
The mass is free and open to the public.

ND Marching Band Concert at the Capitol – In the spirit of replicating a home game experience, the Notre Dame Band will bring their traditional gameday Bond Hall Band Concert to a new location: The U.S. Capitol Lawn.
