The Kentucky Wildcats men's soccer team is an intercollegiate varsity sports team of the University of Kentucky.

Since the Southeastern Conference (SEC) does not sponsor men's soccer (minimum four schools needed to sponsor a sport, only two offer it), the team has been associate members of other conferences. From 1995 to 2004, it was a member of the Mid-American Conference.[2] Since 2005, it and fellow SEC member, South Carolina, have been members of Conference USA. The Kentucky-South Carolina derby is colloquially known as the SEC Men’s Soccer Championship by both schools. [3]
