About the Leprechaun Legion

We are the voice of the student body to the Athletic Department.

The 2013-2014 school year marks the 12th anniversary for the Leprechaun Legion. The Legion is working to improve the atmosphere of all Notre Dame varsity athletic events based on student suggestions.

Originally started by a group of students from Zahm House in 2002, their goal was to improve the atmosphere of Notre Dame home men’s basketball games. The Leprechaun Legion, as it became known, had its debut game in January 2002 against Kentucky. The Legion organized a number of signs and chants for this game and soon the name caught on as a unifying spirit for the Notre Dame men’s basketball student secion. Throughout the season, there were a number of camp outs, roadtrips, and organized cheers all under the name, Leprechaun Legion.

Although the Leprechaun Legion included all students at these basketball games, fundamental to the organizations year-to-year success was a robust officer structure that acted as a board for the organization. Additionally, the strong support of Head Coach Mike Brey has helped with the success of the Legion in its development.

In 2004, the Legion had become so well-known on campus that Notre Dame requested its entry as an official club. This marked the first year that Legion t-shirts were officially given out to all student season ticket holders. From 2004-2012, the Legion continued to enhance the atmosphere for Notre Dame basketball games, sponsoring a number of events and partaking in many highlights for the basketball program.
