Division III men's soccer tournament history

The first Division III men's soccer championship was held in 1974. UNC Greensboro was a dominant force in the 1980's before moving up to Division II and then Division I. In the new millennium, Messiah has set a new standard, winning a record ten championships in a dominating run from 2000 to 2013. But Messiah has failed to reach the Final Four in the past three years as the NESCAC has reigned supreme with Tufts claiming the 2014 and 2016 titles and Amherst the 2015 championship. The NESCAC has now matched the NJAC with four different men's national champions in the 43-year history of the tournament.
