Separate tickets are required for both contests.
St. Joseph Regional Medical Center is serving as the sponsor for this year’s event.
This marks the seventh time in the past eight years that the Fighting Irish have hosted a match against the Mexican national team. The two teams did not meet last spring. Notre Dame claimed a 3-0 victory in front of 2,687 fans at Alumni Field during the last meeting in April of 2006. The Irish hold a 4-1-1 advantage in the series against Mexico.
Notre Dame produced a 19-5-2 record during the 2007 season, which included a trip to the national semifinals.
