Friends of Maryland Basketball

Friends of Maryland Basketball (F.O.M.B.) was organized to support the Head Coach of the University of Maryland Men’s Basketball team in an effort to build and perpetuate a high quality intercollegiate basketball program. The group functions as a passionate group of supporters who share the desire to fund the needs and improvements of the program that are beyond the reach of the annual budget allocations provided by the University. This includes funding in the areas of player development, facilities upgrades, nutrition and recruiting. 

F.O.M.B. members will be invited to three in-season events the golf course with the coaching staff, attend an in-season practice and eat dinner with the student-athletes, and an end of season dinner at Congressional Country Club.*

To become an Official member of Friends of Maryland Basketball you must first be a Terrapin Club member at the Gold ($650) level or higher and must commit $1,000* to the Friends of Maryland Basketball.
