2019 INAUGURAL SEASON | 5 WINS IN FIRST SEASON
Few sports have the broad appeal of soccer. Played all over the world and beloved by athletes of all ages, soccer connects people. Even before winning our inaugural game in 2019, we set out to create national footprint.
Already strong academically and making every effort to become involved in the community, the Saluki Soccer team is determined to leave an indelible mark. With the help of our supporters, we can give student-athletes a unique opportunity and ensure a bright future for an emerging program.
We need private support to fund initiatives that contribute to the program’s success and build awareness and pride for Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
WHERE YOU CAN MAKE AN IMPACT
SCHOLARSHIPS. Saluki Soccer is dedicated to bringing the best student-athletes to SIU. Through scholarships, we build a community of diverse, successful Salukis who act as ambassadors for the university. Our student-athletes are role models in the community and the classroom.
OPERATIONS. From recruiting to training to competition and beyond, there are countless moving pieces underpinning the smooth and effective operation of Saluki Soccer. Every link in the complex operational chain, including support staff and coaching staff for our student-athletes, is important to overall success.
FACILITIES. Saluki Soccer is blessed with many high-level, state-of-the-art facilities, but the need to upgrade is always on the horizon. Maintaining our existing facilities and preparing for the future requires regular investment.
