About BGI

1. What is Blue and Gold Illustrated magazine? 

Founded in 1981, Blue and Gold Illustrated has been America’s foremost authority on Notre Dame football for over a quarter century. Now in our 31th season covering the Fighting Irish, Blue and Gold Illustrated provides an uncommon perspective on college football’s most storied program with a veteran staff that’s covered six different coaching staffs on the Irish sidelines dating back to Gerry Faust. As the nation’s largest college sports magazine dedicated to one particular school, we serve a print audience of more than 20,000 subscribers.

2. Is the online edition of Blue and Gold Illustrated the same as BlueAndGold.com?

No. The editorial content and approach is completely different. BlueandGold.com is part of the 247sports network. With an experienced writing staff, we offer the highest quality of Notre Dame news on the web by focusing on the football program, football recruiting, men’s basketball and baseball. Membership to this site is not included with a subscription to Blue and Gold Illustrated; however, there is a lot of great information available for free, such as an updated commitment list on the home page. Click here to check out BlueandGold.com
