College level American Football will return to Ireland next year with Northwestern and Nebraska set to meet at the Aviva Stadium.
The game will mark the first occasion that either side has ever played in Ireland and organisers are hopeful that many supporters will travel to Dublin from the United States, as well as from continental Europe.
The matchup in Dublin will be Nebraska's first game outside of the United States since the Huskers took on Kansas State in the 1992 Coca-Cola Bowl in Tokyo, Japan.
The focus for the trip will be to play a football game against an outstanding opponent in Northwestern. At the same time, this will be great cultural opportunity for our young men to visit a part of the world that most of them have not seen.
The game is the first in a five-game series to be held annually as the Aer Lingus College Football Classic and will be the first Northwestern football game ever played outside the United States.
