Game Credentials: All requests for working press, photo and broadcast credentials for Notre Dame’s 2019 home football games must be made through the online credential service at UND.com/credentials. Credential requests must be submitted by the assigning sports editor or sports director prior to 7 p.m. ET Thursday (10 days prior to event) the week before each home game in question. If a media outlet needs to change an existing application, please contact Matt Paras at email@example.com.
Because of the demand for credentials and the limited space available, media agencies covering the visiting school on a regular basis receive top priority. All other credentials for print media are issued on the basis of circulation. Only local radio stations with a full-time sports director conducting a daily sports show receive consideration for credentials. Non-originating, out-of-town radio stations cannot be accommodated.
Credential Distribution: Media credentials will neither be mailed nor will be available for early pickup. Credentials will ONLY be distributed on game day at the Hammes Auditorium (the Joyce Center’s basketball interview room, located between Gates 1 and 2). Media will call opens three-and-a-half (3.5) hours prior to all home games. A government-issued ID is required for pickup and each individual must claim only his/her own pass. Photo vest and RF check-in is available inside Door Four (4) of Corbett Family Hall on game day. Photo vests are required to be returned one hour following the conclusion of the game. Failure to do so will result in your organization being invoiced for the vest.
Press Box: The Notre Dame Stadium Press Box will open three-and-a-half (3.5) hours prior to all home games. Working media will be provided food and drinks during the contest. The facility will close 90 minutes following Notre Dame media availability.
Parking: Parking requests will be accommodated on a space-available basis. If approved, parking passes will be shipped via FedEx (if an account number is provided) no later than the Monday before a game to either the sports editor/director or designated attendee using the media outlet’s FedEx account number. Parking passes may also be picked up prior to Saturday outside Isban Auditorium at the Guglielmino Athletics Complex before regularly scheduled football media opportunities or on Friday in the Joyce Center. Parking passes cannot be picked up on campus on game day.
