THE CAMPAIGN FOR
COUGAR ATHLETICS

As MVNU embraces its pursuit of athletic expansion, we are eager to bring a modern Soccer and Lacrosse Stadium to fruition. The $2.7 million project will transform the athletic experience for all levels of our soccer and lacrosse teams by providing a facility that will foster individual and team development and serve as the foundation to build championship athletic programs.

MVNU expects this premier Soccer and Lacrosse Stadium to be part of the athletic fabric of our campus and the greater Knox County community. The signature stadium will be funded, in part, by a dollar-for-dollar match up to $1 million. However, there are many opportunities for you to leave your legacy. By investing in the stadium project, you will empower MVNU to expand its enrollment and provide a facility that can be utilized beyond athletic competition by campus groups and the community. Please join us as we Shine Forth in this exciting endeavor.
