Notre Dame Set To Attend 2018 Ariel Re Bermuda Intl 7s

The University of Notre Dame officially announced their attendance at the 2018 Ariel Re Bermuda Intl 7s tournament next March. Set to play against teams like St. Joe's, Stony Brook and Kutztown, the Irish need to fight hard if they want to go home with the title. 

2018 marks Notre Dame's first trip to the island of Bermuda to internationally compete. Despite their reputation for hard-fought wins, the Irish will be facing off against veterans teams and division champs from a variety of conferences.

St. Joe's had a stellar year, closing out as the 2017 MARC D1AA Fall 15's Champions, and their 7s team has always excelled at ball movement and kicking skills in Bermuda. Stony Brook returns for its third year in a row, giving them significant field advantage, looking to make it back into the Finals. In 2017, Kutztown took home the title of champions by defeating the Bermuda All-Stars on their home turf by a convincing score of 33-5. Watch the match »
