NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The University of Notre Dame Athletics Ticket Office announced Saturday that less than 1,000 tickets remain available for the Dec. 2 Irish women's basketball game against Michigan at the Joyce Center. The contest, which is scheduled to tip off at 2 p.m. (ET), is close to becoming the fourth sellout in program history, and the first since Dec. 31, 2005, when a capacity crowd of 11,418 fans watched Notre Dame nearly rallied to defeat top-ranked Tennessee before falling by a 62-51 score.
Single-game tickets for all Notre Dame women's basketball contests (including the Michigan game and other premier matchups with No. 1 Tennessee on Jan. 5 and No. 2 Connecticut on Jan. 27) are available at a cost of $8 for adults and $5 for both youths (21-and-under) and seniors (55-and-older). Students at Notre Dame, Saint Mary's College and Holy Cross College with a valid student identification card are admitted free (via Joyce Center Gate 1) to all Irish women's basketball games. Single-game group tickets (for parties of 20-or-more) are on sale for $3 per ticket, excluding the Tennessee and Connecticut games -- and other restrictions apply.
Notre Dame women's basketball tickets can be purchased in three different ways:
In addition, season tickets for the '07-08 Notre Dame women's basketball campaign remain on sale and may be purchased at $66 for individuals and $54 for full-time Notre Dame faculty/staff. The Irish women's basketball Fan Pack (a group of four tickets) are on sale for $194 each, or $162 for University faculty/staff, with additional tickets in the Fan Pack available for $37 each.
For the first time, Notre Dame also is offering a special "Triple Threat Pack," giving fans the option to buy tickets for the Tennessee and Connecticut games, as well as a third game of their choice, for only $15 per pack. The new three-game ticket plan has been a popular purchase for many Irish women's basketball fans, with nearly 1,500 packs sold since they debuted on Oct. 9.
What's more, Notre Dame supporters can get a jump on buying tickets for the 2008 BIG EAST Championship presented by Aeropostale, slated for March 8-11 at the Hartford (Conn.) Civic Center. The Irish Athletics Ticket Office currently is selling six-session ticket packages (covering all 11 games of the tournament) at a cost of $99 per package.
No. 23/24 Notre Dame (4-1) continues its three-game homestand Tuesday at 7 p.m. (ET) against Canisius before next weekend's matchup with Michigan.
