Gopher Athletics nurtures a community of University supporters unlike any other
Whether it’s a crisp autumn afternoon, a sunny winter’s day or a warm spring evening, Gopher Athletics is hosting crowds proudly wearing the Maroon and Gold.
Gopher Athletics does more than unite people with each other. It unites people with the University of Minnesota, providing welcomed opportunities to deepen their connection with the U of M. Gopher Athletics builds community and loyalty when we all share the pride of belonging to the University of Minnesota, creating an amazing sense of singular purpose for our institution.
We see potential for all of our 25 programs to achieve greatness – which will attract more positive attention for our University and greater numbers of on-campus visitors – but greatness across Gopher Athletics requires modern resources. We need an academic center and nutrition facilities built to accommodate all 750 Gopher student-athletes and increased training spaces to provide more flexibility for teams to schedule practice times. These new facilities are a critical investment to continue building the value of Gopher Athletics.
If you would like to support our Nothing Short of Greatness campaign, which is funding these facilities through private contributions, please click the “Donate Now” button below and also share information about the campaign with your fellow Gopher fans.
So much of what we do is about this state and about the fan support that we get… we know the fan support and you people are what drive this great University.
