Entering its second year of existence, the Notre Dame Athletics Fan Council assists the department in evaluating and enhancing the fan experience at Fighting Irish athletic events and assess new fan engagement opportunities. This group convenes quarterly on campus, and members have the opportunity to provide feedback from their personal experiences attending Notre Dame events.
“We were very impressed with the level of engagement and commitment from our inaugural fan council that consisted of 24 members residing in nine separate states,” Notre Dame assistant athletics director for marketing Brian Pracht says. “It’s important for Notre Dame athletics to continually seek information from our constituents, and the fan council already has proven to be an incredible resource for this valuable interaction.”
Similar to last season, the fan council will feature students, alumni and non-alumni–all representing a cross-section of fans from Notre Dame’s athletic programs. Members will serve for one academic year, beginning in July 2016. Meetings will cover many topics that impact fan engagement and will feature guest speakers within the Notre Dame athletics administration and coaching staff.
