Buy Season Tickets
NOTRE DAME, Ind. – With national championship-winning head coach Jim McLaughlin on board as the University of Notre Dame volleyball program’s fifth head coach, now is the perfect opportunity for fans to lock in their season tickets for the 2015 season.
For a limited time only, fans that purchase season tickets will receive an early-bird special. Last year, season ticket prices were $35 for adults, $20 for youth and seniors and $80 for a family four pack (two adults, two youth tickets). This year, the early-bird special features season ticket prices that are $25 for adults, $15 for seniors/youth and $60 for a family four pack (2 adults, two youth tickets).
Promotions will be announced closer to the start of the season, but with a season ticket, fans will get to watch the new-look Irish take on approximately 16 opponents, including 10 Atlantic Coast Conference foes, at Purcell Pavilion.
Leading eight returning veterans, including all-ACC Freshman Team member Sam Fry, and four talented freshmen into action will be McLaughlin, who was announced as Notre Dame’s new volleyball head coach this past Saturday after 14 successful years at the University of Washington.
At Washington, the Malibu, California native led the Huskies to NCAA semifinal berths four times, ultimately claiming the national championship in 2005.
In 18 years as a women’s volleyball head coach at Kansas State and Washington, McLaughlin made the NCAA Tournament 17 times, advancing to the round of 16 or farther an amazing 10 times.
The only coach in NCAA history to lead both a men’s and women’s team to national championships, McLaughlin claimed the men’s title in 1990 at Southern California before finishing second in 1991.
