2017 Football Game Day Sustainability
The Notre Dame Athletics Department is proud to partner with the Office of Sustainability this home season in showcasing the amazing sustainable features in the newly renovated Notre Dame Stadium.
This season, a unique sustainability theme has been identified for each home game. These themes have a direct correlation to the renovations and upgrades you may experience on your Notre Dame Game Day. They will be showcased via the video board, ribbon board, stadium concourse monitors, and on social media.
Below are the themes that correspond to each home game:
Temple- Repurposing of Stadium Seats
- Did you know? That 100% of the bench seating removed was repurposed? Even though your former seat seemed small, that’s equivalent to 19 miles of seating that was used around the Notre Dame stadium and other campus projects.
Georgia- LED Lights
- Did you know? The new LED stadium lighting delivers improved broadcast quality, provides instant on and off capabilities and dimming controls, and reduces power consumption by 60%. It’s better than a day game and saves money, too!
Miami of Ohio- Bike Racks
- Did you know? There are 90 bicycle racks located around the stadium to promote exercise and reduce car use and emissions – and parking your bike is free!
- Did you know? Notre Dame students distribute more than 23,000 blue recycling bags to tailgating fans each season?
North Carolina State- Green Roof
- Did you know? The roofs located on top of the Duncan Student Center, Corbett Family Hall, and O’Neill Hall are home to the largest vegetative “living” roof system in the state of Indiana.
Wake Forest- Food Rescue
- Did you know? Following every home football game this season, Notre Dame, in conjunction with Levy, the food service provider for Notre Dame Stadium, donates prepared and unserved food from game days to Cultivate Culinary, a local non-profit organization.
Navy- Geothermal Systems
- Did you know? Almost 300 feet beneath the Stadium Parking Lot, is a geothermal well field, consisting of approximately 500 wells with 1,000 tons of capacity.
