2017 Atlantic 10 Conference men's soccer season



The 2017 Atlantic 10 Conference men's soccer season was the 31st season of varsity soccer in the conference. The regular season began on August 25 and concluded on November 1. The season culminated with the 2017 Atlantic 10 Men's Soccer Tournament which began on November 4 and concluded on November 12.

UMass went on to win both the regular season at tournament championships. Saint Louis entered the season as the defending regular season champions, but a dip in form, prevented them from retaining the title. Fordham were the defending tournament champions, and have qualified for the A-10 Tournament, offering them an opportunity to defend their title. The Fordham Rams were eliminated by UMass in the semifinals.

In addition to UMass; regular season and tournament runners-up, VCU, as well as Fordham qualified for the NCAA Tournament. This was the first time since 2014 that an A-10 team earned an at-large berth in the tournament. Further, this was the most teams the A-10 fielded in the NCAA Tournament since 2012, when there were four berths from the conference. In the tournament, VCU was given a second-round bye and 16 seed where they were eliminated by Butler. Massachusetts and Fordham contested in the first round. Massachusetts fell to Colgate, while Fordham ended up going on a quarterfinal run, knocking off two ACC teams. It was the furthest run by an A-10 team in the tournament since 2011, when Charlotte reached the 2011 College Cup Final.
