Athletics

"Drive with the Irish" Courtesy Car Program

Since the 1970's the University of Notre Dame Athletic Department has partnered with automobile dealerships in an athletic courtesy car program. Participants of this program play an integral role in promoting Notre Dame's varsity sports programs in respects to their athletic and academic success. The automobiles provided enable our coaches and administrators to visit thousands of individuals (prospective student-athletes, alumni, benefactors, corporate sponsors, etc.) across the country each year. In addition, this program allows Notre Dame to recruit, attract and retain the best student-athletes, coaches and administrators in the country.

For those of you considering a vehicle purchase in the future, please consider buying from the participating dealers below that support Notre Dame Athletics.

For more information on the Drive with the Irish Program and its benefits, please contact:
