The new Football Club at Oakland University (Rochester, Michigan) is seeking your financial support to alleviate the cost of fooball operations for the 2014 season. Entering our second year, the team has decided to use FundRazr.

Why donate to the new Football Club at Oakland University?

  • OU began in 1957 and never had football until the football club was initiated and approved in 2013. The club is student developed and operated.
  • They club competes in a a full-contact National Club Football Association (NCFA) that uses almost all of the standard NCAA college football rules.
  • In 2013, the club made OU history with its 5-2 record in their first season. OU ended #2 in the Great Lakes East conference and #8 overall in the NCFA.
  • NFL Films gave attention to one of our players in 2013. The story received national attention.
  • The football club is active in their community, engaging both the campus in Rochester, Michigan and youth football groups in the surrounding area.
  • The football club has almost 3,000 likes on FaceBook, more than any other club sport at Oakland University.
  • OU History was made in September when the university changed its Homecoming weekend to the fall. OU beat UW-Milwaukee 27-26 in the closing minutes of the game.

How will your funds benefit the new Football Club at Oakland University?

  • The football club would like to keep free admission to our home games. It's important to us that families, students, alumni, and fans can continue to see college football free of cost. This benefits both OU, fans, and team awareness.
  • Without a primary source of income, players pay for club costs out of pocket. While the team cannot survive on that income alone, your donation will help pay for costs of coach bus travel, away game food, home game and practice field rentals. Many of the football club's away games are in Ohio and other neighboring states. The club usually needs lodging at one game per year.
  • Practice facilties on campus do not exist, and need to be rented. The team practices three times a week. Your funds will go toward practice facilities, especially late in the fall when lighted fields are needed.
  • The team plans to use funds to purchase crucial practice equipment, and membership to football video technology like HUDL

Thank you for reading about our successes and funding challenges.
We appreciate your support.
