project summary

Four-time conference champion Western New England Golden Bears football program playing in the Commonwealth Coast Conference based in Springfield Mass. is raising funds to support upcoming competition in Italy in March 2018 and Florida in September 2019

Why is this important?

It’s been a tradition of our football program to travel to play teams outside of the United States.  The NCAA lets us play a game internationally every three years and this our fourth such trip.  In 2019, we have also scheduled Stetson University, a FCS team down in Florida.  Both of these games help our football program and the University gain recognition.  If there is football to be played, we are going to play it, no matter where.  Playing these games adds spice to our normal routine and is attractive to future Golden Bears.  Your donation will help offset costs for both trips while enhancing the experience of our student-athletes.

Where will the money go?

Our first funding priority is to support team competition in Italy.  We need to pay for stateside costs that are not included in what our players pay to make the trip. These costs include roundtrip transportation to Boston Logan Airport and indoor practice time while in the US.  Our Baseball, Softball and Lacrosse teams are already using the turf in late February and early March, and when you combine the weather conditions, it’s hard to get turf time.  That makes it necessary to get some turf time in the bubble at Sports World in East Windsor CT.  If we surpass our target goal for funding, maybe we’ll get into one more museum in Rome.

Our second funding priority is to support our trip to Stetson in 2019.  This trip will require plane and bus transportation. We will also need meeting rooms and audio visual equipment to review film.  Your donation will allow us to properly prepare to win a game against a FCS opponent.

Help us reach the goal line!
