The Blue-Gold Spring game for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will not be open to the public to purchase tickets. Notre Dame announced today that attendance will be only for students, faculty, staff, and family members of the team.

It was also announced that the game will be exclusively streamed on Peacock, the NBC streaming service, rather than on a broadcast with NBCSN.

The full press release from Notre Dame Assistant Athletics Director for Football Communications can be found below.

NOTRE DAME, Ind. — The University of Notre Dame will host its 2021 Blue-Gold Game on Saturday, May 1, at Notre Dame Stadium. The scrimmage, which will mark the final spring practice for the Fighting Irish football’s spring practice schedule, will begin at 12:30 p.m. ET. The Blue-Gold Game will stream exclusively on Peacock and fans will be able to enjoy the game for free.

NBC Sports’ Paul Burmeister will be returning to the Notre Dame Stadium announcing booth as the play-by-play announcer for the game. He will be joined by NBC Sports analyst Corey Robinson ‘17, a former Notre Dame football student-athlete, and sideline reporter Caroline Pineda, a current Notre Dame student and Fighting Irish Media student employee.

Attendance for the Blue-Gold Game will be consistent with campus ticketing policies during the 2020 campaign (limited to the local Notre Dame community – students, faculty, staff and families of participating student-athletes). Tailgating will continue to be prohibited.

More details regarding ticketing and parking will be provided to aforementioned parties in the near future.
