The University of Notre Dame has unveiled The Shirt 2020.
This year’s design, which is the 31st in the series, is intended to capture the experience of a Notre Dame game day, according to The University. To accomplish this, designers used elements familiar to the Notre Dame community on the front. They designed the word “Irish” in a Celtic style, in reference to the mascot, the bagpipe band, and the 2020 season opener in Ireland and they wrapped it around a window of the Golden Dome.
The goal for the back of The Shirt was to depict the excitement of game days at Notre Dame and the loyalty that the fans show through a two-ticket design using elements from Notre Dame football’s present and past. Surrounding the tickets is a leaf design taken from the tile floor design found on the floor of the Golden Dome and the phrase, “with unshakable spirit, we live out our legacy.”
The annual fundraiser from The Shirt Committee usually comes with a big pep rally on the campus. This year it took place on the committee’s official Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube accounts.
The Shirt is a fundraising effort for student clubs and organizations and brings together the student body, alumni, and fans each football season
