2020 Aer Lingus College Football Classic to be played in Dublin’s Aviva Stadium
DUBLIN, Ireland (Jan. 7, 2020) – Carr Golf, Golf Digest’s Editors’ Choice Award Winner for “Best Tour Operator” four years in a row, announces a handful of its exceptional custom-built itineraries for the 2020 Aer Lingus College Football Classic in Dublin remain available.
Thrilling NCAA college football will return to the Emerald Isle next year on Aug. 29 as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish clash against the U.S. Naval Academy Midshipmen. As the Official Golf Travel Provider for this unique event, Carr Golf’s “one-of-a-kind” itineraries combine the game at Aviva Stadium with exclusive tee times and accommodations in sought-after venues and hotels in Ireland and Scotland.
This will mark the third meeting between Notre Dame and U.S. Naval Academy in Ireland. They will compete for the coveted Keough-Naughton Trophy named for dignitaries Donald Koeugh and Martin Naughton. Koeugh was the first inductee into the Irish American Hall of Fame. Naughton trailblazed Irish studies programs in the U.S.
Announced by Ireland’s Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, next year’s game is part of a five-game “American Football Series” estimated to bring in $250 million dollars to the Irish economy. Aviva Stadium is home to the Irish Rugby Football Union and Republic of Ireland’s national football team.
“Two storied U.S. college football programs going head-to-head will make for an incredibly exciting and fun week in Dublin,” says Marty Carr, executive chairman of Carr Golf. “We are thrilled to showcase the unbelievable golf, accommodations and hospitality here in Ireland as we celebrate the Fighting Irish returning to their roots to take on the U.S. Naval Academy.”
