NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The University of Notre Dame women’s soccer team is slated to begin their home spring season slate with an exhibition against the U-20 Mexican National Team on April 11 at Old Alumni Field behind Arlotta Stadium.
The Irish have a long standing tradition with facing the Mexican National Team during their spring season and have had a number of former players suit up for Las Tri.
Current Irish freshman Luisa Delgado played for the U-17 Mexican National team from 2014-16. She started every game for Mexico in the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Amman, Jordan.
Former Irish standout Monica Flores was with the full Mexican National Team during the qualifying rounds for the 2019 Women’s FIFA World Cup. Flores appeared in all three games, making two starts during the group stage portion before Mexico was eliminated.
Unlike previous years, the men (4/26) and women (4/11) will be playing Mexico on different days. Both games will be at Old Alumni Field behind Arlotta Stadium as the field is being redone at Alumni Stadium this spring. Due to the venue switch, space will be limited for both games compared to years past.
Women’s tickets are on sale for $5 for adults and $3 for youths. Men’s tickets are also on sale and the first 1,000 men’s tickets come with a women’s ticket as an early bird special. Students will be able to enter for free by showing their ID like a regular home game.

The two remaining women’s spring matches against Michigan (4/14) and Milwaukee (4/27) will also be played at Old Alumni Stadium and admission is free.
