Football Ticket Information



I’m an alum. How can I participate in the football ticket lottery?

Notre Dame alumni are eligible for the football ticket lottery with an annual gift to the University, according to the guidelines below. Graduating seniors each year automatically receive a lottery application for the football season immediately following their graduation (e.g., the Class of 2019 will receive an application for the 2019 football season).

Minimum Annual Gift Guidelines

All gifts should be made directly to Notre Dame by December 31 to qualify for the following year’s lottery.

2010–2019 $100
1968–2009 $200
Prior to 1968 $100
Special Contributor $1,500+

*Based on first ND degree

I’m not an alum. Can I still participate?

If you’re not an alum—and even if you are—you are welcome to participate in the lottery as a special contributor.

How do I become a special contributor?

Become a special contributor and enjoy improved odds in the lottery with an annual gift of $1,500 or more to Notre Dame. One way to become a special contributor is to join a Giving Society.

What gifts count toward eligibility in the football ticket lottery?

Any gift you make to Notre Dame is credited toward your eligibility in the lottery. Corporate matching gifts do not count toward your eligibility.
