WVU Athletics

 

 

Why we need your support

 

As a self-supporting auxiliary to the University, the WVU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics does not receive State funding or financial support from the University.

The cost of competing at the highest level and providing a quality education for our more than 500 outstanding student-athletes continues to climb. Private support enables us to recruit and train elite student-athletes in quality facilities, fund scholarships and compete with peer institutions.

Financial stability ultimately breeds success, and success breeds pride among WVU’s many alumni and friends.

 

How you can help

 

Funds generated by the Mountaineer Athletic Club (MAC) are our primary resource for meeting critical needs. On the Day of Giving, your gifts to these MAC funds will help maintain our position as one of the nation’s premier programs.

 

Puskar Center Complex
The Puskar Center phase of the master plan identifies approximately 72,000 square feet of renovation and 13,700 square feet of expansion to reflect WVU Football's success and promote its future. Key needs include a renovated athletic training room with a new hydrotherapy center, an expanded locker room with wider lockers and updated ventilation and a renovated team lounge.

WVU Coliseum Complex
The Coliseum Complex phase of the Master Plan will connect existing and future facilities, renovate underutilized facilities and bring a consistent aesthetic to all buildings and plazas. Renovations will include a new Olympic sport weight room and performance center, as well as house team locker rooms and a shared lounge for Track, Rifle, Wrestling, Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Golf and Rowing.

Cary Gym Complex
West Virginia University will soon renovate Cary Gym, the existing practice facility of the WVU Gymnastics team. At an estimated cost of $5 million, this renovation will update the training room and locker room, as well as add gym space, a student-athletes' lounge, a study area, a team meeting space, a cardio-rehab space and a storage space.

WVU Golf Complex
West Virginia University will soon add a training and development center to create a true home for the WVU Men's Golf program. At an estimated cost of $5 million, this facility will include a team clubhouse and locker room, six indoor hitting bays, a driving range, short game area and putting green and multiple green practice course.
