Notre Dame Concessions

Notre Dame Concessions, operated by Centerplate, is gearing up for its second season on campus, coinciding with the 125th anniversary of Notre Dame Stadium. To celebrate, Centerplate will offer souvenir cups and popcorn boxes as well as new menu items and special promotions.

“We look to improve the fan experience with many of these new items,” says Ryan Cummings, Centerplate general manager.

Additional concession locations will be placed on the upper concourse of the Stadium, as well as at Arlotta Lacrosse Stadium, Alumni Soccer Stadium and Heritage Hall in Purcell Pavilion. Menu items will be expanded at Arlotta, Alumni and Purcell as well. The Compton Family Ice Arena will add a bottomless popcorn promotion with souvenir bucket, as well as an ice cream hockey helmet.

Continued aesthetic improvements are planned for the service areas, and enhanced training will be offered to game day staff.

According to David Harr, associate vice president for auxiliary operations, “The University understands that the responsibility of its concessions program is much more than simply serving good food. It is our responsibility to connect with our fans through hospitality.”
