At the invitation of The Shirt Project, Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly unveiled The Shirt 2014 on April 11 (Friday) at the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore during a ceremony to celebrate The Shirt Project’s 25th anniversary.

The Shirt Committee 2014

The first major decision The Shirt Project executive committee makes is what color the next year’s Shirt will be. These days, we choose the vendor, then the color, then the design, but in the past, choosing the color often came well after the committee members had developed the design.
