Notre Dame to limit crowd size for last 2020 home football game
NOTRE DAME – The University of Notre Dame announced on Friday, November 20th, that the last home game of its 2020 football season will have very limited seating. This game will likely have the smallest crowd in the stadium’s history.
The last home game on December 5th will see the Irish take on the Syracuse Orange.
It will be the only game where Notre Dame students won’t be on campus to take part.
Attendance is being limited to faculty/staff and immediate members of the households, as well as the families of the players.
Tickets will be complimentary for this game and will not be made available to the public.
Faculty/staff can get up to six tickets each and a Notre Dame ID must be shown to get in.
Due to COVID-19 safety, attendance for the season has a maximum of 15,525 people, out of the possible 77,622 seats.
For their first five home games there has been an average number of people between 10,182, against Louisville, and 11,011, against Clemson. The Louisville game is the fourth smallest in stadium history.
The record low for attendance was in 1933 against Kansas with 9,221 fans in the stands.
