ND Experience

The Notre Dame Experience will be open to the public from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm for Saturday’s home football game versus Navy in the Joyce Fieldhouse (North Dome). Admission is free to the interactive fan event. Our new games allow fans to emulate the Irish by participating in the 40-yard dash, vertical leap, obstacle course, QB challenge and more! Fans will have the opportunity to visit our Video Game Lounge, enjoy our Social Media Lounge or work their way through the other displays within the ND Experience for photo opportunities or collecting give-aways.

Throughout the day, there will be entertainment including an autograph session with former Notre Dame football players, Notre Dame videos and programming, and a visit by the Notre Dame cheerleaders and Leprechaun. Fans can enjoy concessions and drinks provided by Centerplate. The festivities will wrap up at 3:00 pm with the showing of the Notre Dame Football ™ pre-game show on NBC and then the live broadcast of the game.
