Eastern New Mexico University recently announced the discontinuation of the men’s soccer program effective at the conclusion of the 2020-21 academic year. The Eastern New Mexico Board of Regents supported this decision at their March meeting.

“This was a very hard decision for us to make as an Athletic Department and University as a whole, but was made with the long-term interest of all our Eastern New Mexico students in mind,” said Athletic Director¬†Matt Billings.

The Greyhound soccer team became an NCAA varsity program in 2004. Most recently, during the 2019 season, the Hounds posted the most wins in a season in program history with an overall record of 12-5-1. Overall, the program compiled a 75-134-35 record in 16 seasons.

All current men’s soccer student-athletes will have their athletic scholarships honored if they choose to remain at Eastern New Mexico. Those wishing to transfer will be given assistance moving to another program.
