Notre Dame Football’s 273-game sellout streak to end with Navy game
NOTRE DAME, Ind.—The second-longest sellout streak in the NCAA history is expected to end, a spokesperson for Notre Dame Athletics said Thursday.
Notre Dame’s 273-game sellout streak is set to end on Saturday with the football game against Navy. The university does not expect the upcoming game against Boston College to sell out, either.
University Vice President and James E. Rohr Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick released the following statement:
“Based on ticket sales through Wednesday, we do not anticipate sellouts for our games against Navy and Boston College. That this comes during a time of sustained success for our football program reflects both challenges impacting the ticket market nationwide and the unique dynamics of this year's schedule. Most importantly, however, we are grateful to our fans who have filled the stadium for the last 273 games -- dating back to our November 1973 game against Air Force -- and 321 of the last 322 contests dating back to 1964. We will continue the tradition of making Notre Dame Stadium a destination for generations of Fighting Irish students, alumni and fans while providing the best possible atmosphere for our student-athletes."
In the school’s history, 77% of games played have been sold out (364 of 473).
Total attendance during the 273-game streak was 19,160,118 fans.
According to Notre Dame Athletics, ticket prices in stadium bowl have not risen in the past three years.
