The 2009 Interhall Champion Siegfried Ramblers celebrating the championship in the stadium
Interhall Football at Notre Dame is played for several reasons that go beyond the traditional motivations that are given for playing a sport. The University continues to sponsor the program despite severe monetary costs and harmful injuries. This suggests that the program has reached such a high level of popularity that it remains vital for the University to continue it. The sport is important for the player, the fan, and the university as it provides a mechanism for displays of brotherhood and masculinity.
