Game Credentials - Notre Dame Men's Basketball requests for working media on assignment for a professional organization (written press, online media, photo, etc.) will go through the Notre Dame Men's Basketball online credential application that will open in fall.  Email requests will not be accepted.  All requests for credentials should be made at least 48 hours prior to each game. Credentials will be granted to accredited media only. Spouses, children and guests are not permitted in the press row area on the floor of Purcell Pavilion.

NBA Scouts- NBA scouts requesting credentials for scouting purposes should also request credentials through our online application.  When space is available, NBA scouts will be situated in the press row area.

Depending on media demand for game, overflow media and NBA scouts will be placed in the upper press box of the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center.

Photographers- Credentialed photographers are not permitted to shoot in front or behind the team benches, the scorer's table or press row. When space is available, photographers also will have a seat at press row to set up their computers to transmit photos. When there is a high media demand for the game, an auxiliary room off of the Purcell Pavilion floor by the Gate 8 entrance is available to all photographers. The room is equipped with tables and chairs for photographers to set up their equipment and computers.

Post-Game Media-  Both head coaches will be available in the Hammes Basketball Auditorium, located in between Gate 1 and Gate 2 of the Joyce Center. Media will want to exit the court via the tunnel across from the visitor's bench and the Joyce Center Ushers will direct you to the auditorium.  Select Notre Dame players will be available in the team room adjacent to the team locker room immediately following the game. Visiting post-game player interview requests should be made to the visiting team athletics communications director.

Credential Pick Up- Media credentials can be picked up at media will call at the Media entrance at Gate 8. Credentials can be picked up 2 hours before game time for men's basketball games.

Media Entrance - The media entrance for basketball games; men and women is Gate 8 of the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. Media should pick up their credentials at the Gate 8 entrance and enter the arena through this entrance. If you are a media member with season credentials you must still only enter the arena through Gate 8.  Media will not be allowed to enter the building through other entrances of the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. 

Press Row - Press row at the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center is located behind the east hoop closest to the tunnel from gate 8.  Media should enter the arena through gate 8 and then proceed throught the tunnel.  It is necessary for working media with a credential to use the gate 8 tunnel to access the floor and press row, however, media should not stand in the tunnel while the game is in play or shoot still photos or video from the gate 8 tunnel. Media should proceed to their assigned seat in press row.  If you are a photgrapher or videographer Fighting Irish Media staff will provide specific shooting assignments on a game by game basis. 

Auxiliary Press Row - Fighting Irish Media anticipates high media demand for high profile games that will require for media to use our auxiliary press row located on the north side of the Purcell Pavilion bowl.  Access to this auxiliary press level is on the second floor of the concourse closest to Heritage Hall.
