New in 2017
- Tiered Pricing Model - As announced in February, Notre Dame has moved to a location-tiered pricing model for football tickets in Notre Dame Stadium. No longer will the person who sits in the end zone be asked to pay the same amount as the person who sits at midfield. This is a more equitable approach that will ensure greater access to Notre Dame football games. The result of this approach is that, depending on the location of the seat and the game, ticket prices for traditional bench seating will range from a low of $45 to a high of $250.
- Home Game Seat and Parking Selection – In 2017, those participating in the lottery will be able to select their exact seats in Notre Dame Stadium as well as their parking. Seat selections will be made using a 3D model of Notre Dame Stadium allowing lottery participants to review seat availability, seat location in relation to aisles and entrances as well as a view of the field from the seats.
- Joyce and Stadium Handicap - Joyce Handicap (JH) and Stadium Handicap (SH) passes will no longer be issued. The physical location of accessible parking in these lots is not changing but will now require a state issued ADA placard or qualifying license plate in addition to the standard Joyce (J) or Stadium (S) lot pass.
- Pricing - Parking passes will no longer be priced by game. Although each lot will carry a different price, this price will be the same for each home game.
- Parking & Ticket Lottery Unification - The football parking lottery and football ticket lottery have been unified in the new seat selection process. Eligibility for the parking lottery has not changed, but the new system will allow you to select parking from an overhead map of the parking lots surrounding Notre Dame Stadium. As in the past, parking is limited, in high demand and expected to sell out quickly. Those who traditionally used the parking lottery should now purchase parking in the new system.
- Replacement of wooden bench seats in the lower bowl with galvanized steel clad in dark blue vinyl and a widening from 16 to 18 inches to match that in the upper bowl
- A 96-by-54-feet HD video board for live game action, replays, celebratory moments in Notre Dame's history, and sharing of information about various University initiatives and achievements (there will be no advertising)
- Ribbon boards 3 3/4-feet high running the length of Corbett Family Hall on the east side of the stadium and Duncan Student Center on the west for game information, including clock, score, down and distance

- WiFi throughout the stadium
