SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WANE) With ticket sales starting this week, the University of Notre Dame announced Wednesday it plans to have full capacity at all seven home football games this fall.

The university indicated the decision was made following consultation with the St. Joseph County Health Department. All students and staff are required to be vaccinated before returning to campus for the 2021-22 school year and those attending games are encouraged to be vaccinated.

“In addition to a full capacity crowd, we are optimistic that conditions will allow us to resume outdoor game-day traditions, such as tailgating, football player walk, Midnight Drummers Circle and Football Fridays at the Eck,” said Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick.
