Want to travel to the ND championship game?

Posted:

The big game may be over a month away, but many fans are already planning their trip to Miami to watch the ND Irish.

"You can't put a price on something like that cause of the tradition and memories it's going to bring," says fan Doug Jordan. 

But let's say you could put a price on it, just how much will it cost? Let's start with airfare. Depending on where you're flying from, travel agencies say expect a round trip to be between $300 and $600.

And once you get there, "We try to make it easy on our guests by putting all the components in together so it's one stop shopping."

That's why Ann Roepke says many agencies like Anthony Travel offer packages, many which include three nights in a hotel and ground transportation.

"Right now we're estimating the package range will be between $1,700 and $2,400 per person. With airfare on top on that it can be an expensive trip," says Roepke.

Some packages include a game ticket, if not then add that cost to your budget.

"The cost of ticket will be $350 each and the university is receiving an allotment of 17,000 and we could probably easily sell 100,000 so it's going to be a pretty tough ticket," says Assistant Athletic Director, Josh Berlo.

If you're making the trip you will probably want to represent your team, that means you need the proper apparel.

"We have anything that a Notre Dame fan is going to want to wear to the game," says Keith Kirkpatrick.

He says that may be a $20 undefeated season shirt or a full outfit including beads, buttons and face tattoos.

"You can spend anything from $15 to $300, it's really just the level of excitement that you're bringing down," says Kirkpatrick.

When you do the math, the total cost for a trip to Miami could be between $2,000 and $3,000. All for one game, but it's not just any game, and fans like Jordan say it's worth every penny. "It's a once in a lifetime thing."
