Football home opener to be streamed exclusively on Peacock
Observer Sports Staff | Thursday, August 5, 2021
The football home opener for the Irish against Toledo will be streamed exclusively on Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming service. Notre Dame football and NBC Sports’ relationship began in 1991, and this will mark the first time a home game is available exclusively on a streaming service. Peacock did recently stream the 2021 Blue-Gold Game this past May.
Notre Dame vice president and athletic director Jack Swarbick discussed the impact this game will have on the relationship with NBC Sports.
“Bringing Notre Dame Football to Peacock is just the next step in the evolution of our relationship,” Swarbick said.
Peacock joins Fighting Irish TV as a location for streaming of Notre Dame athletics. Fighting Irish TV launched in spring of 2021, and is a University-owned platform where fans can stream video content for all athletic teams.
The game against Toledo will kick off at 2:30pm ET on Saturday, Sept. 11.
