The Old Dominion Athletic Foundation

The Old Dominion Athletic Foundation, commonly referred to as the ODAF, was established in 1964 with the mission to provide the resources necessary for the success of Old Dominion Athletics and our student-athletes. The ODAF is the channel through which our fans and alumni can partner with our coaches and student-athletes for the advancement of the athletics program.

odaf because of you

In August of 2017 ODU President, John Broderick, announced a fundraising initiative for Old Dominion University.  As a part of the university wide initiative, the Old Dominion Athletic Foundation is being tasked with raising $40,000,000 in support of ODU Athletics and our student-athletes.  As we look to move our program forward it is our mission for ODU Athletics to be recognized nationally for excellence in intercollegiate athletics.  We are confident that this athletics initiative will give ODU Athletics the resources to rise to national prominence.


Because of you, we create winners in the classroom, in athletic competition, and in life!

Meet Ryan Grizzle, Proud Supporter of ODAF!

What is your favorite memory of ODU Athletics? There were so many great moments that it is hard to pick just one.  I remember sitting court-side for the final ODU Men's Basketball game at Scope against Virginia Tech, the last game at the Field House, and the opening of the Ted against UNC.  I traveled to Madison Square Garden with our NIT Final Four Team in 2006.  Not to be outdone, I remember sitting at the Bud watching Justin Verlander strike out 16 VCU Rams his junior year.
