Men's Soccer

The University of Dubuque men’s soccer team shared the Iowa Conference title in 2010 and have not finished lower than third in the past four out of five years in league play. The Spartans have celebrated 104 total victories and have lost only seven games in the IIAC over the past four seasons. UD has earned six straight trips to the Iowa Conference Tournament.

The Spartans will push the ball up the field, attack quickly, and be the aggressor when they compete. Expect the Spartans to battle every time for the 50-50 balls while keeping the ball on their opponents half throughout the matches. The play offers many chances to compete with more than 30 student-athletes seeing varsity action this past season. UD players have been named All-Iowa Conference 31 times, NSCAA All-North Region five times, All-American once, Academic All-Iowa Conference 20 times, and Academic All-Region 4 times.
