Taking the Panther Train to the Next Level

UNI Wrestling has a storied legacy spanning 100 years. The Our Tomorrow campaign will fundraise for a new training facility to carry the Panther Train into a brighter future.

Fundraising Goals

The University is working with architects to develop more detailed plans for the facility. Preliminary costs to provide similar square footage as the wrestling space in the West Gym are being determined.

This project will be solely financed by private gifts. With the support of the Panther wrestling community, we will build a facility that enables our student-athletes to compete at the highest level for years to come. Gifts of $5,000 or more will be included on a donor wall in the new facility.
