We are delighted to see the return of the Aer Lingus College Football Classic to Dublin.
American College Football will return to Ireland for the fourth time in eight years with the Aer Lingus College Football Classic between Notre Dame and Navy at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium on Saturday, August 29, 2020.
Notre Dame and Navy will kick off their 2020 seasons in the 94th meeting of the longest uninterrupted intersectional rivalry in college football. The Irish and Midshipmen will be making their third visit to Ireland; in 1996 they met in Dublin at Croke Park for the first time with the Irish defeating Navy 54-27, and then again defeating Navy 50-10 at Aviva Stadium in 2012. It is expected that 35,000 fans will travel from the US and Europe to take in the full College Football event experience.
