Aviva Stadium Will Have Notre Dame Flare in Endzones for Navy Matchup

Notre Dame plays in Ireland for the third time on Saturday afternoon against Navy, but for the first time the Fighting Irish will be the home team. As such, the field at Aviva Stadium will have a very Notre Dame flare to it, including a nod to Notre Dame Stadium‘s icon endzones.

Here’s a video the University posted on Wednesday.

Whoever came up with this concept did a fantastic job incorporating Notre Dame’s 18 stripes from the endzone of Notre Dame Stadium with a Celtic knot concept. For those unfamiliar with the history behind Notre Dame’s endzone stripes, there are 18 of them, all at 42-degree angles, to represent the 1842 opening of the University.

There have been some more pictures of the stadium posted throughout the week by Notre Dame’s equipment team. Here are a couple of tweets from Chris Bacsik, Notre Dame’s head football equipment manager.

Overall, it looks like the Notre Dame and Aviva Stadium teams are doing a great job of making it feel like a home away from home for the Fighting Irish this weekend.
