2021 Showcase

With the university game set for 2021, U.S. High School teams will travel to Dublin and compete in an official game the Friday before the Aer Lingus Classic. All the prep school players will enjoy the big NCAA contest, along with a parade and pep rally.

In 2012, 12 visiting teams thrilled local fans in Dublin and County Meath the night before Notre Dame and Navy met for the first time in Ireland’s capital. Two years later a pair of Pennsylvania rivals clashed at the UCD Bowl on the eve of the Penn State versus UCF meeting at Croke Park. In 2016, six teams played a triple-header of high school games at Donnybrook Stadium as the curtain-raiser to Georgia Tech facing Boston College at the Aviva Stadium.
