What is The Shirt?
Our committee works all year to produce a shirt that Notre Dame nation can take pride in wearing throughout the football season. Dozens of iterations are created before the final design is chosen.
Half of the proceeds from The Shirt go to The Shirt Charity, which helps students afford unexpected medical expenses. Remaining revenue is used to fund student clubs, organizations, and The Rector Fund, which allows all students to have the full Notre Dame experience regardless of their financial situation.
Within Notre Dame Stadium, The Shirt can be seen as a common thread uniting not only the students, but all fans in one solid color. A sea of same-colored Shirts gives the opposing team a "twelfth man" to fear.
