We at Illinois Matmen are looking to expand our original news coverage of duals and tournaments across the state as well as feature stories on wrestlers, coaches, and teams for the 2016-17 wrestling season.

We have considered a premium subscription service to help cover the added costs of this increased coverage, but it has always been our goal to keep all of our content including articles, rankings, results, and live broadcasts free to the Illinois wrestling community in an effort to promote and grow the sport.

Local newspapers aren't covering the sport like they used to, and we want to help fill that void. We have some of the best wrestling writers in the state on board and ready to start writing original content for Illinois Matmen.

If you want to see more original articles covering the sport of wrestling in Illinois, please consider donating to the cause.

All proceeds from this campaign will go directly towards compensating reporters for writing original stories for Illinois Matmen.
