To compete in the Missouri Valley Football Conference, one of the country’s toughest conferences, Saluki Football needs your help. It’s important that we attract top athletes, maintain coaching continuity and offer our players the amenities expected of a top-tier program. The student-athletes we rally around during football season represent SIU all year as outstanding academic students and involved community members.
Built on a strong foundation of history and Saluki pride, our football team is always striving to reach new heights. To help our program grow and thrive, we must depend on passionate investors who understand the need for continuous advancement to recruit and develop student-athletes who compete for championships.
We need private support to fund initiatives that contribute to the program’s success and build awareness and pride for Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
