Under the leadership of Florida Memorial University Athletic Director Ernest T. Jones, FMU’s Division of Athletics is spearheading the Lions Football initiative. Football is returning to FMU in 2020.

Announced in June, FMU held a reception July 31 in Broward to kick off its financial campaign for football. Supporters can also purchase limited-edition 2020 inaugural football hats and shirts.

The Midtown Commerce Center was buzzing with energy at the Rebirth of Football at Florida Memorial University reception.

“I will match any donation made today to support football at Florida Memorial University,” said Coach Jones.

“From trainers to coaches, FMU’s initiation to football will require corporate, community and alumni financial support,” a statement from the school read. “Everything, including new equipment, more staff and key partnerships are essential to the success of football at FMU.”
