The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Wisconsin Badgers have scheduled a football series at Lambeau Field and Soldier Field, the two schools announced on Monday.
In the first game of the series, Notre Dame and Wisconsin will play at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Oct. 3, 2020.
Lambeau Field is the home of the NFL’s Green Bay Packers. Nicknamed the “Frozen Tundra,” Lambeau Field seats 81,411 and last hosted a college football game in 2016 when Wisconsin upset LSU 16-14.
The second and final game of the series will be played at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois on Sept. 25, 2021.
Soldier Field, the home of the NFL’s Chicago Bears, has a seating capacity of 61,500. It has hosted several college football games over the years and next hosts Illinois and USF in 2018.
The games against Wisconsin will be the “Shamrock Series” game for Notre Dame for both seasons, Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick stated at the press conference announcing the events.
Notre Dame will be the home team in Green Bay in 2020, and Wisconsin will be the home team in Chicago in 2021.
Notre Dame and Wisconsin have met 16 times on the gridiron. The Fighting Irish lead the series 8-6-2, but the two schools haven’t squared off since a three-game series between 1962 and 1964.
