Notre Dame Football Fans Can Purchase Stadium Grass for $149.95

Monday, 19 May 2014 02:05 PM

 

Notre Dame fans can buy a section of football stadium grass, which is being replaced by artificial turf.

For $149.95 fans of the Fighting Irish receive a five foot by two foot piece of grass from the 2013 season, the school said on its website. The price was set taking into account both market prices and a desire to make it accessible to a wide range of fans, the school said, adding that it includes the cost of shipping.

The South Bend, Indiana, school said it’s selling the grass because “fans over the years have expressed feelings about the sentimental value the grass in Notre Dame Stadium holds for them.”

Since the Associated Press began certifying college football’s national champion in 1936, Notre Dame has eight titles, more than any other team in the nation.

The website said sections will be taken from the areas of the field with the least amount of wear and consist of as much fully covered grass as possible. The parcel of grass comes with a certificate of authenticity.

The grass will be removed from the stadium tomorrow and shipped the following day, the school said.

Notre Dame last month said its inability to keep an acceptable playing surface prompted a switch to an artificial playing surface. The school in January said it would spend $400 million to renovate its football stadium, the largest building project in the university’s 172-year history.
