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 2020 will receive an application for the 2020 football season).

Minimum Annual Gift Guidelines for Alumni

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