Game Credentials – Notre Dame Men’s Basketball requests for working media on assignment for a professional organization (written press, online media, photo, etc.) will go through the Notre Dame Men’s Basketball online credential application that will open in fall. Email requests will not be accepted. All requests for credentials should be made at least 48 hours prior to each game. Credentials will be granted to accredited media only. Spouses, children and guests are not permitted in the press box area in Purcell Pavilion.
NBA Scouts – NBA scouts requesting credentials for scouting purposes should also request credentials through our online application.
Photographers – Credentialed photographers are not permitted to shoot in front or behind the team benches, the scorer’s table or press row. All photographers will have access to the Photo Work Room on the game floor level of Purcell Pavilion (exit via the ramp utilized by the visiting team – across from their bench, then take your first left, the room will be on your left). The room is equipped with tables and chairs for photographers to set up their equipment and computers and Wi-Fi access for photo uploads.
Post-Game Media – Selected Notre Dame student-athletes, the visiting coach and Glenn and Stacey Murphy Head Men’s Basketball Coach Mike Brey will be available in the Hammes Basketball Auditorium, located in between Gate 1 and Gate 2 of the Joyce Center. Media should exit the press box, go through the doors to the right that lead to Heritage Hall then take the stairway to your left down toward Gate 1. Visiting post-game player interview requests should be made to the visiting team athletics communications director.
Credential Pick Up – Media credentials can be picked up at media will call at the Media entrance at Gate 1. Credentials can be picked up 2 hours before game time for men’s basketball games.
Media Entrance – The media entrance for men’s and women’s basketball games is Gate 1 of the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. If you are a media member with season credentials you must still only enter the arena through Gate 1. Media will not be allowed to enter the building through other entrances of the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center.
Press Row – The working press area at Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center is located in the upper press box just outside of Heritage Hall. Media should enter the arena through Gate 1 and then proceed up the stairs to the press box. If you are a photographer or videographer, Fighting Irish Media staff will provide specific shooting assignments on a game-by-game basis.
