The West Virginia Mountaineers men's soccer team is the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I soccer team of West Virginia University (WVU). Beginning with the 2012 season, the team was an affiliate member of the Mid-American Conference because WVU is the only school in its primary conference, the Big 12 Conference, that has a varsity men's soccer team. For the 2022 season, West Virginia joined in-state rival Marshall in the Sun Belt Conference, and the Mountain State Derby will become an annual conference game. WVU had been scheduled to leave the MAC for Conference USA but this plan was changed when Marshall changed conferences from CUSA to the SBC.

(NOTE: Prior to 1972, the NCAA sponsored only one championship in men's soccer. In 1972, the NCAA began sponsoring a championship in the College Division, which in turn was split into today's Divisions II and III in 1973. The 1972 College Division Tournament was retroactively considered to be the first D-II championship event. WVU remained in competition in the University Division, which was renamed Division I in 1973, and has remained in D-I to this day.)
Mountain State Derby
West Virginia's biggest rivals are Marshall, as the two sides are the only Division 1 men's soccer teams in the state. Both teams are members of the Sun Belt Conference for men's soccer, and matches between the two teams typically draw large crowds.
