2009 Football Ticket Lottery Results Available July 8

 

July 2, 2009

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Results from the University of Notre Dame football ticket lottery will be available on-line beginning Wednesday (July 8) - and, despite continuing high demand, the University's alumni, friends and fans ended up with better chances of winning tickets in 2009 than they did in the most recent record-setting seasons.

The athletic department ticket office projections indicate that alumni win rates will be significantly better in this year's lottery than in `06 and `07 for both home and away games. Alumni who followed the University's advice to apply for tickets to as many games as possible (four or more) of this year's seven home games, for the most part, will win tickets to one or more home games this season. The inventory from a seventh home game helped bolster this year's win rates.

Senior alumni requests for their designated game, Nevada on Sept. 5, remained high this year. However, a lottery was not necessary for the senior alumni allocation. For a second straight year, separate lotteries also were held for members of giving societies.

Alumni ticket requests in the past few years have been high and continue to be for 2009, based on these examples:

  • More than $1.5 million will be refunded this year to unsuccessful lottery participants. The ticket office will begin to mail those refunds the week of July 13.
  • Requests for this year's USC home game exceeded 45,000, the highest demanded game for 2009.
  • Approximately 25,000 tickets were sold through the lottery for the off-site home game with Washington State to be played Oct. 31 in San Antonio, Texas.
  • Notre Dame alumni, Monogram Club members and benefactors who make an annual minimum contribution to the University are eligible to participate in an individual game ticket lottery for both home and away contests. In excess of 30,000 tickets per game are available for each home contest for contributing alumni. Away game ticket inventory varies by site. When the quantity of tickets requested exceeds the supply, a random number driven lottery is conducted.

     

     

    The Notre Dame ticket office currently is finalizing the '09 lottery and preparing refund checks. Lottery results will be available beginning July 8 on-line at www.und.com/tickets or by calling 574-631-7356 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EDT.
