ANNAPOLIS, Md. | Notre Dame and Navy will play in Dublin, Ireland, in 2012.
Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk says Aviva Stadium will be the site for the 86th meeting between the Fighting Irish and Midshipmen.
The $410 million stadium opened in May and has a seating capacity of 50,000.
"Obviously as an Irish-Catholic from Boston, Mass., I'm going to have a lot of requests for tickets — not airline tickets," Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said after Tuesday's practice in South Bend, Ind. "No, I just think it's a great venue and I'm excited about it. That's one of the unique things about being an independent, that you can have a game like that on the schedule. It certainly doesn't hurt in recruiting, either."
Navy and Notre Dame have met every season since 1927. This season they will play at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on Oct. 23.
