Welcome to GCU Men’s Club Soccer

The Grand Canyon University men’s club soccer was established in the fall of 2015, but already has transformed into one of GCU’s most reputable athletic clubs. The rapid growth that our club has experienced qualifies us as one of the fastest growing club soccer programs in the nation. We have established an extremely competitive collegiate men’s club team that will play 18-game schedules in the fall and the spring.

As a club, we are a member of the Southwest Conference and compete in the West Coast Soccer Association. Our travel team plays fall and spring seasons that consist of matches hosted by GCU at our top-notch facilities, as well as matches in California, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas.

The men’s GCU soccer club is truly a year-round program that plays upward of 40 matches, including tournaments. Our club is supplied with top-level coaches, equipment and uniforms, and plays on some of the best fields in all of the Southwest. Join us for fun, competitive and skilled soccer!
