Notre Dame Stadium opened in 1930, when famed coach Knute Rockne was leading the Fighting Irish football team.

In the 88 years since, the stadium has been the site of countless memorable moments. Last year, the $400 million Campus Crossroads project — which added three buildings on the exterior of the stadium, premium seating and a large video board — was completed.

This photo gallery shows Notre Dame Stadium through the years, from its initial construction to today.
