Nov. 13, 2008

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The University of Notre Dame athletics department has announced the special designation home football games for the 2009 season:

Sept. 5, 2009NevadaSENIOR ALUMNI GAME
Nov. 7/21, 2009Navy and ConnecticutPARENTS GAME (see details below)
Nov. 7/21, 2009Navy and ConnecticutALUMNI FAMILY
Please note that there have been some changes to the special designation games for 2009, as detailed below.

Notre Dame contributing alumni who graduated 35 or more years ago receive priority status on their alumni ticket application for the designated Senior Alumni game (Sept. 5 vs. Nevada). In the event that demand from senior alumni again exceeds supply, as in recent years, tickets will be allotted in descending order to the most senior alumni. For example, tickets will be assigned first to those in the 50-year club and then descending in years since graduation. It is a priority of the University to make as many tickets as possible available to the Senior Alumni population.

For 2009, parents of returning Notre Dame undergraduate students may apply for up to four tickets to each of two home football games (Nov. 7 vs. Navy and Nov. 21 vs. Connecticut). Parents will be guaranteed to receive tickets to at least one game. If you choose to apply for both parent offerings, one of your games, based on demand, will be subject to the general lottery.

The Parent games for incoming (first-year and transfer) students will be determined at a later date, based on demand and availability. Those games will be announced in June 2009.

For the designated Alumni Family games (Nov. 7 vs. Navy and Nov. 21 vs. Connecticut), contributing alumni have the option to apply for up to four tickets on their lottery application for those games only.

Minimums and qualifications apply for all contributing alumni. If you have questions about your alumni status, please contact the Alumni Files Office at 574-631-7959.

Please call the Notre Dame ticket office for more information. A detailed brochure will be sent with your application in late April. The Notre Dame ticket office can be reached at 574-631-7356, or online at
