Notre Dame and NBC announced Saturday that they have agreed to extend their media rights agreement, keeping Fighting Irish football on the network through the 2029 season.
As reported by The Associated Press, NBC has been the home of Notre Dame’s home football games since 1991. Their current agreement was due to expire after the 2024 season.
The current deal with NBC pays Notre Dame about $22 million per year. Financial terms of the new deal were not disclosed.
“We are thrilled to continue our historic collaboration with our partners at NBC Sports,” Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said. “In the next generation of this partnership, we will collaborate to provide our fans even more Notre Dame content through a variety of NBCUniversal’s distribution channels while continuing to put our student-athletes and their stories at the heart of our messaging.”
“There is no better tradition than Notre Dame Football in South Bend, and we are thrilled to keep that tradition within the NBC Sports family as we extend our relationship as the exclusive home of Fighting Irish football games,” NBC Sports President Rick Cordella said, as reported by NBC Sports. "... With enhanced rights that allow us to present Notre Dame Football on NBC as well as across Peacock and additional platforms.”
Peacock will also be the exclusive home of a documentary series each year on Notre Dame football, beginning in 2024.
