Stadium construction causes changes for ND Blue-Gold Game
SOUTH BEND —
Notre Dame annual Blue-Gold Spring Football game is Saturday, but this year there are changes to know about due to the stadium renovation happening.
The Campus Crossroads project is a big endeavor to enhance Notre Dame Stadium. When it's finished there will be more than 750,000 square feet of teaching, research and performance space.
So fans who are coming to campus tomorrow for the Blue-Gold game should keep that current construction in mind. One key change is the public must use specific entrances to get into the stadium.
Gates B, D and E of Notre Dame Stadium will be open starting at 11:30 a.m. Saturday. There will be some other changes due to the construction as well: Press box tickets will not be sold,
tickets will be limited to the west side of Notre Dame Stadium and capacity for the game will be capped at 25,000.
Parking is free and is on a first come, first serve basis. All lots and White Field will open at 7 a.m. Saturday. Tailgating is permitted in the parking lots, but there are new restrictions on what you can bring into the stadium. Backpacks, duffel bags and tote bags will not be permitted. All items are subject to inspection upon entrance.
Kick-off for the Blue-Gold game is at 12:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets can be purchased online or at the event.
