NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The University of Notre Dame Department of Athletics recently launched a program that enables fans to upgrade seat locations and purchase unique fan experiences at Fighting Irish home men’s basketball games using their smartphones at Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. Notre Dame has partnered with Experience, an Atlanta-based company, to offer the seat upgrade and fan experience technology that allows fans to download an application to their phones and register for these unique opportunities.

“It’s important for our department to look for innovative and meaningful ways to enhance the gameday experience for our fans, which is always a top priority,” says Brian Pracht, assistant athletics director for marketing. “This program is very simple and convenient for fans to use with their smartphones.”

Fans can register on irish.expapp.com to receive a notification for upgrades and fan experiences. For the final two home games against Georgia Tech (Feb. 26) and Pittsburgh (March 1) home games, Notre Dame will have seating upgrades available in multiple areas including midcourt and courtside seats. Among several of the options available to fans are the opportunity to purchase hospitality passes for Club Naimoli, welcome the Irish team to the court in pre-game and watch the postgame head coach press conferences.

The seat upgrades are not substitutes for a game ticket and purchase of a game ticket is required for entrance to Purcell Pavilion.
