Dublin has become the European home of American College Football with the opening game of the new college football season now hosted in the Aviva Stadium during August.

The next in the five game series is Notre Dame hosting Navy in the Aviva Stadium on Saturday 26th August 2023, bringing an estimated 40,000 US visitors to Dublin City. The game will be the first time that Notre Dame will move a home game to Ireland and is set to provide a major boost to the country.
