The weekend of the season home opener against Texas will be full of exciting events all across campus! Here are some highlights of what’s to come…


Friday, September 4th

ND Stadium Tunnel Tour 10:00 am – 5:00 pm


Since 1931, every Notre Dame football team has walked down the same tunnel, to the same field before every home football game. Every Irish fan has the opportunity to walk the same fabled walk every Irish player has taken for the past 81 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. Free and open to the public.

The Notre Dame Stadium tunnel tour will be open from 10:00am until 5:00pm, except during team walk-throughs.
