Football tickets available only to ND students, faculty and staff, to be grouped by ‘household’
Observer Staff Report | Monday, August 31, 2020
Attendance at football games will be limited to students, faculty and staff, with a few approved exceptions, this season with students receiving first priority, vice president and James E. Rohr director of athletics Jack Swarbrick said in an email Monday morning.
In order to enforce health and safety protocols, Notre Dame students living on-campus will be seated by rooming assignments, with a maximum of four tickets per household. Notre Dame undergraduate off-campus students may purchase single seats or grouped seats with other students sharing the same address, with a maximum of four seats per residence group.
Seating is assigned to ensure physical distancing.
According to the email season tickets will be offered to all Notre Dame students — however, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross students may purchase season tickets only should space be available.
Additional exceptions include families of the participating athletes, media and a “small number of external visitors will be required to follow strict health protocols and will be seated separately from members of our campus community,” the email said.
New protocols forbid tailgating on game days, mandate mask-wearing at all times and mobile ticketing will be used in lieu of physical tickets.
“Working together, let’s make this unique season a safe and successful one, both on and off the field,” Swarbrick said.
