You Can Build an Elite Program for World-Class Athletes

ASU’s Division 1 athletic teams—nine men’s and fourteen women’s in all—represent a pathway to higher education for student-athletes from across the nation and around the world. For many, the athletic scholarship and academic and social support they receive from ASU are what place a college education within reach. For all, the drive and commitment they develop as Division 1 athletes will shape their lives forever. Your support for Sun Devil athletics through Campaign ASU 2020 will ensure ASU’s ability to provide the best facilities, equipment, coaching staff, and support programs, which are the foundation of a truly stellar and nationally competitive program.

It takes a community to build a successful athletics department and wrestling program. Proud folks from Arizona and the nation provide us with the resources necessary to achieve in the classroom and on the mat. These friends, families, and fans put us in the position to become the best. Everyone who cheers us from the stands, their living rooms, and their computers makes us who we are. Our supporters are the 'team' behind the team!"
