Announcing the Shamrock Spring Weekend


Join Us to Celebrate Notre Dame’s Spring Sports

The University of Notre Dame is pleased to invite fans to campus for the free Shamrock Spring Weekend, as six Fighting Irish programs will compete in Atlantic Coast Conference play from April 17-19.

The Shamrock Spring Weekend features 10 events, highlighted by free admission to baseball’s three-game series against North Carolina State, softball’s Strikeout Cancer weekend versus Syracuse and the women’s lacrosse matchup with Louisville. Additionally, the Irish will host a trio of tennis matches, as the men take on Wake Forest and North Carolina State and the women battle Duke. Fans will have the opportunity to win giveaways throughout the weekend, including pizza from Papa John’s, Notre Dame aluminum water bottles and other Fighting Irish prizes.

The top-rated Irish men’s lacrosse squad also wraps up its home slate against North Carolina at 4 p.m. EDT Saturday, however that game already is sold out. In addition to the ACC action, the Irish men’s and women’s soccer programs will continue spring exhibition play.

The Blue-Gold spring football game will be played at 12:30 p.m. EDT Saturday at the LaBar Practice Complex. However, there are no tickets for that event available to the public. The NBC Sports Network will televise the Blue-Gold game live. Fans on campus can view the game on the video board in Purcell Pavilion.

Concessions and the Hammes Bookstore will be open in the Gate 4 parking lot, on the northeast corner of the Joyce Center.

Parking for these events is available free of charge in the Library, Bulla, Stadium and Joyce lots. Normal tailgating policies will be in effect.
