State Football Championship

Notre Dame Family,

This 2017 fall season has been a special time at Notre Dame High School! The Girls Soccer and Cross Country teams qualified for the State Competitions while the Irish Volleyball Team won the District Championship.  For the first time in its 48-year playoff history, the fall sports season will conclude with the Irish Football team competing for the Division 2-AA State Championship against Lausanne on December 2nd, 2017 in Cookeville, TN.  Kickoff is 4pm EST (3pm Central Time).  For those who might have interest, we are pleased to provide our fans, parents, alumni, and supporters this Blue Cross Bowl information packet for the game.  We are looking forward to a large Notre Dame crowd and hope that you are able to attend this weekend’s historic Championship event.

Go Irish!

Ticket Sales:

Tickets will be sold throughout the week of November 27th and will conclude on Friday, December 1st, 2017. Ticket prices will be $12 and Non-school age children are free of charge.  Please purchase your tickets at Notre Dame High School as a portion of on-campus tickets sales will directly benefit Notre Dame.  Tickets will also be sold at the Bonfire on Thursday (11/30) evening beginning at 6:30pm. Tickets may be purchased at Tennessee Tech but don’t directly benefit the school in the same way. All tickets are general admission and can be used throughout the entire day. 

Notre Dame is the home team with the home spectator seating being in the West stands with admission access through gates 2 and 3. 

Will passes out of the stadium be provided and are tickets game specific?  

One ticket entitles a fan to attend all three games during one day.  Hand stamps will be used for those who need to leave the stadium and return on that same day.  No re-entry will be provided without a hand stamp.  Hand stamps are specific to each day and will not transfer from one day to the next.

Fan Information:

Are there any limitations related to noise makers or visual displays during the game?

Are there any other expectations?

Unfortunately, spectators, parents, and students will not be allowed on the field after the game.  Only those with appropriate credentials are allowed in designated areas at Tucker Stadium.
