Looking to get more out of Notre Dame Stadium than seven football games a year, Notre Dame officials announced Thursday plans for a feasibility study to determine the possibility of getting more use out of the home to the Fighting Irish.
The school is looking to possibly attach a conference center with classrooms and meeting space, a media center, a visitors' center and other functions to the 83-year-old structure. Additionally, Notre Dame could add 3,000 club seats to the already existing 80,000 seats.
Instead of largely sitting empty for 358 days a year, the plan would turn the House that Rockne Built into a hub of campus activity in South Bend.
The school also released an artistic rendering of what a revamped Notre Dame Stadium would look like, complete with a shamrock at midfield.
