Extend Your Reach

Thousands of fans attend Notre Dame sporting events each year and more are expected to make their way to South Euclid, Ohio, with the Falcon’s increased presence, new on-campus athletic fields and conference expansion.

Thousands of fans enjoy Falcons football each week, and the average attendance for basketball games is over 600 for men’s basketball and 500 for women’s games. The average attendance for wrestling is over 600 for dual matches at home.
