Notre Dame headed to Ireland for first home game of 2023

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame will be taking on Navy at Aviva Stadium in Dublin for their first game of the 2023 season. 

Those who purchased tickets for the cancelled game in 2020 will be given the first opportunity to buy tickets, and good news for fans: because this will be considered a home game, Notre Dame will have more tickets available for sale than they did last year. 

The one downside: this means that there won't be as many home games right here in South Bend. According to the Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick. the university is trying to strike a balance between the local and international communities.

“We’re trying to balance our obligation to the university to extend Notre Dame nationally and internationally, with our obligation to the local community," said Swarbrick. "To bring people here for home games to fill hotels and restaurants and bars. We’re very conscious of it. We try and balance it. With seven home games, typically, we feel we have the opportunity to do that. If we have six really good home games and one that we take to Las Vegas next year, or Ireland in this year, we think it’s the right balance.”
