"Because of you, I was able to move from Argentina to here, and get an amazing education but even a little more important to me, an amazing new team and coaches that are already my family. Thank you so much for your support! Go Monarchs!"



2021 has proven to be a challenging but fruitful year for ODU Athletics. We are very much looking forward to our move to the Sun Belt Conference and have been more excited about seeing all our donors, fans, and season-ticket holders in the stands once again this year. As we continue to look forward in anticipation, we are hoping to end the year on a high note with your help!

The Old Dominion Athletic Foundation (ODAF) is responsible for covering 45% of our annual athletics scholarship bill for our student-athletes. That number is approximately $4.6 million in 2021. We are hopeful that you will help us achieve this goal by taking part in our end-of-the-year initiative.

This year, we are offering the opportunity to Donate for a Chance to Win* select ODU Athletics prizes and/or experiences. All qualifying donations made to the ODAF between now and December 31, 2021, can be entered to win the following prizes:


$1,000 Minimum: All-Inclusive Priority Automotive Club Football Package for 4 against VT in 2022

$500 Minimum: Men’s Basketball Courtside Seats for 2 for a home conference game of your choice

$500 Minimum: Women’s Basketball Courtside Seats for 2 for a home conference game of your choice

$100 Minimum: A game helmet signed by Head Football Coach, Ricky Rahne


We are so thankful for your continued support. Because of you, we can provide an opportunity for student-athletes to become champions in the classroom, in competition, and in life. Please ask a fellow Monarch to join you and ODU Athletics in our continued rise to prominence.

If you have additional questions or would like more information on how you can further support our initiatives, please call the ODAF mainline at (757) 683-6963 or your ODAF representative. We thank you once again and we’re so grateful to have you as part of our family and team.
