Notre Dame Women’s Basketball has the best fans in the country! With an average attendance of over 8,500 fans, Notre Dame ranks in the Top 5 in the nation, making for an electric game day atmosphere at the Purcell Pavilion. What makes the Notre Dame Women’s Basketball experience so unique is the connection between the team and the fans. In addition to autograph sessions after every game, the Irish host several events specifically for fans to meet and talk to the players and coaches including tip-off luncheons, pizza parties, “Meet the Freshmen Night,” “X’s and O’s with the Irish coaches,” fan marketing sessions, open practices and more.
Social media is a growing avenue for coverage of Notre Dame women’s basketball and fan interaction as well. The Fighting Irish offer two separate Twitter accounts (@ndwbb and @ndwbbsid) with the latest news and behind-the-scenes information on Notre Dame women’s basketball. The program also has its own Facebook account (“Notre Dame Women’s Basketball”) and a YouTube Channel (“notredameirishhoops”) that has seen nearly a quarter of a million viewers visit in its first year of existence.
It is not just fans watching a team play at Notre Dame, it is a family – the Notre Dame Women’s Basketball Family!
