WEST POINT, N.Y. - This year has presented one of the most unique challenges in the history of college athletics. As we navigate through the cancellations and postponements that have impacted all our sports due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Army West Point Athletics is facing a critical financial challenge. To combat this challenge, we’re excited to announce the Fight on to Victory Campaign which will help offset the projected budget shortfall, while also serving as a rally cry and inspiration for our outstanding cadet-athletes, coaches, staff, alumni and supporters around the globe.

“2020 has been an unprecedented year” said Army West Point Director of Athletics Mike Buddie. “Through it all, the hard work and our relentless pursuit of excellence has not stopped. The Fight on to Victory campaign will help us close the gap and ensure we have the resources necessary to preserve what I believe is the greatest and most rewarding experience in college athletics.
