Notre Dame ranked among the top 10 most in-demand college football programs of 2022

If you want to get off to one Notre-Dame football game on Markus FreimanHis first season as head coach will cost them. On Friday, Stubhub released a 2022 college football preview that showed the Irish ranked #6 on a list of the most sought-after college football programs that year.

Given Notre Dame’s brand awareness, recent success on the gridiron – the Irish have notched up five straight seasons of 10 wins for the first time in program history – and having multiple marquee games on the board, a sixth place finish is not too surprising. Notre Dame was No. 5 in 2021. Alabama topped the list last year, but Ohio State is at the top this season.

Obviously, Notre Dame is not in a conference in football. But StubHub also released breakdowns by conference, and the SEC tops the charts. The Big Ten follow behind, then the Big 12, ACC and Pac-12 bring up the rear in that order. Overall, demand for this fall’s games on StubHub exceeds pre-season ticket sales by more than 10 percent.

What about game specific demand?

When it comes to games played each Saturday, Notre Dame’s two contests against likely top-five preseason opponents are the most coveted: Ohio State’s Irish opener ranks No. 2 in the nation in terms of demand while the game on Nov. 5 Clemson is No. 7.

According to the ticket company’s website, the ticket price for the August 14 clash between the Irish and the Buckeyes is just over $400. The game will be the primetime ABC show on Labor Day Weekend, and ESPN’s College GameDay will be on-site Saturday morning.

The cheapest Clemson-Notre Dame tickets are around $250 per StubHub. Timing and a more national matchup are the likely contributing factors driving costs down. But if both teams are highly placed at the end of October, it won’t be a cheap ticket.
