Thirty years in the making, The Shirt 2019 will be revealed to Irish fans Friday (April 12) at the unveiling ceremony beginning at 4:30 p.m. To celebrate The Shirt’s milestone anniversary, a special 30th anniversary commemorative item will also be announced. The celebration will be held at Eddy Street Commons with many local businesses there providing special promotions to celebrate the unveiling.
The ceremony will feature a variety of special guests, including Patrick Warburton, known for his iconic characters on “Seinfeld” (David Puddy), “The Emperor’s New Groove” (Kronk), “Bee Movie” (Ken) and many more. To celebrate The Shirt’s 30th year, the project’s founder, Brennan Harvath (Class of 1991), will return to reveal a special collector’s item with its own unique design. The ceremony will also showcase Notre Dame talent with performances from various student groups. The Dick Corbett Head Football Coach Brian Kelly will unveil The Shirt 2019 at 6 p.m.
The Shirt will be available for purchase immediately after the reveal. Since the ceremony takes place at Eddy Street Commons, the line to purchase The Shirt 2019 will begin by the side of the main stage, near the Eddy Street location of Hammes Bookstore. Fans will be able to purchase the 2019 edition of The Shirt at both Hammes Bookstore locations. Parking will be available to those who use the garage entrance on either Napoleon Street or Burns Avenue.
For the past 30 years, The Shirt Project has unified the student body, alumni and fans each football season. Proceeds from sales benefit student clubs and organizations, The Shirt Charity Fund and the new Student Experience Fund, which ensures all students have access to the full Notre Dame experience. Over its 30-year history, more than 2.9 million shirts have been sold and $11.5 million has been raised for The Shirt Project charities.
