Notre Dame won’t participate in EA Sports College Football
The University of Notre Dame will not participate with EA Sports College Football video game until the rules regarding student athletes are finalized.
Jack Swarbrick, Vice President and Director of Athletics, made the announcement Monday in a statement.
Notre Dame Athletics welcomes the return of EA Sports College Football, a video game series that has historically helped promote interest in college football. Notre Dame will not, however, participate in the game until such time as rules have been finalized governing the participation of our student-athletes. As those rules are developed, it is our strong desire that student-athletes be allowed to benefit directly from allowing their name, image and performance history to be used in the game.
