When you visit Notre Dame Stadium for a football game on a crisp autumn afternoon, you actually feel as though you are waking up the echoes of the grandest tradition in college sports. From the moment you approach the Notre Dame football exit on I-80 in South Bend, Indiana, you know this is going to be a special experience. The... More

There is nothing like the excitement of going to a football game at the Notre Dame stadium. The students, the fans, the tail gating and the band all make for a wonderful way to spend a Saturday in South Bend. When you tour the stadium, you can just hear the echos and feel the excitement there from all the games... More

I have never met anyone coming to South Bend/Notre Dame who did not want to go into Notre Dame Stadium. It's historic and not just for the movie "Rudy". Folks like to look from the Stadium to "Touchdown Jesus", the 14 story mosaic of Jesus the teacher on the library side facing the stadium. If you can't get tickets to... More

The stadium is one of our favorite places on campus. Win or lose ( or win) you will enjoy watching a game here. The seat allotments aren't the biggest, so its good if you like the person sitting next to you.

The crowd knew this was a weaker team than usual. No booing! All kinds of construction around 3 sides of the stadium. Should be finished by 2017 season.

What a fabulous experience being in the ND stadium. So many memories of childhood. So many memories of ND football heroes of years past. They need to improve the seats...which I hear ND is doing in this next renovation. Prices are really expensive....seems to be spiraling out of control.

This stadium is fantastic. The energy that surrounds the place is great. The staff is super friendly and makes your time in the stadium worth the ticket price. The concessions have plenty of options and the lines move briskly without skimping on service. I love watching a game here.

A game at ND is a must for many and is a good overall football experience, particularly the pre-game atmosphere. Some of the high end zone seats are not the best. The crowd was welcoming (until ND lost) and in the game for the most part. I look forward to coming back.

Beautiful stadium in a great location in the middle of Notre Dame campus. Very safe and very fan-friendly. Visitor fan-bases are normally treated very well. Very easy to get around and there is a restaurant and hotel area very close to the stadium. Traffic not too terrible before and after the games, but parking is becoming scarcer and scarcer. Nice...

If you don't mind sitting on hard benches with total strangers who have been drinking since 9 AM for up to four hours, in weather that can range from steaming to freezing (sometimes in the space of hours as the Sun sets), this is THE place to watch college football. Now, if you can finagle an invitation to the Press... More
