Notre Dame football to play Navy in Dublin, Ireland in 2012

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Save the date -- the Fighting Irish will play Navy at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland on Sept. 1, 2012. It will be Notre Dame's first football game on foreign soil since 1996, when the Irish beat Navy 54-27 at Croke Park in Dublin during Lou Holtz's final season as head coach.

Aviva Stadium, which opened in May, has a transparent roof and seats 51,000 for American football. All Notre Dame fans are encouraged to attend.

''To see this stadium is to believe it has to be one of the finest venues in the world,'' Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said. ''Although modest in capacity, few stadiums anywhere have attended to the detail, aesthetics and fan comfort found at Aviva.

''I guarantee those who travel to Ireland and attend this event will enjoy an experience that will be awesome and a memory not to be forgotten.''
