Notre Dame Location
Notre Dame Stadium
This home of the Fighting Irish football team was built in 1930. Legendary coach Knute Rockne designed the stadium but coached only one season there before his tragic death in a plane crash. The stadium was expanded for the 1997 season and now has a capacity of 80,795 fans. Students are guaranteed tickets to all home games, and they enthusiastically express their solidarity with their classmates on the field, as well as the parents, alumni, and other supporters who come out for a game day celebration.
What's happening in Notre Dame Stadium
Joyce Center Arena
Notre Dame’s Joyce Center serves as a multipurpose sports complex, a theatre and concert hall, a convention center and an office building. Beneath the southernmost dome lies the Purcell Pavilion, home to the men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams. Beneath the north dome is the volleyball practice facility, the Castellan Family Fencing Center, and the newly-created Fighting Irish Digital Media offices. Both domes also host other events throughout the academic year.
Compton Family Ice Arena
The Compton Family Ice Arena (CFIA) opened its doors to the public on Oct. 18, 2011 and just three nights later (Oct. 21), hosted its first Notre Dame hockey game with the Irish handing the Rensselaer Engineers a 5-2 loss in front of a capacity crowd of 5,022.
Warren Golf Course
A links-style course comfortably nestled on 250 wooded acres. Expertly preserved as a wildlife habitat, the course received the coveted Audubon International certification. Lush fescue fairways, softly rolling terrain and the golden dome in the background make the course a beauty to behold.
