Through its history, Bucknell has played in the Middle Atlantic Conference (1947–73), East Coast Conference (1974–89) and Patriot League (1990-pres.). Bucknell has won all four of its Patriot League titles since 2006 and in doing so has been one of the most successful Patriot League teams in that time.
The Bison are currently coached by Brendan Nash who has the best winning percentage and second most wins of any coach in program history.
Bucknell has made seven appearances in the NCAA Division I Men's Soccer Championships. The Bison have advanced to the second round three times by defeating Penn State in 1974, George Mason in 2006 and Princeton in 2009.
Emmitt Field at Holmes Stadium hosts games for Bucknell's men's and women's soccer teams. Located on campus, the natural grass pitch was completed in 2005 with the remainder of the lighted stadium and grandstand finished in 2007.
The field was dedicated as Bison Varsity Soccer Field on September 16, 2005, prior to Bucknell's 3-2 women's soccer victory over Marist. It has since played host to the Patriot League Men's Soccer Tournament in 2009 and the Patriot League women's soccer tournament in 2006, 2007 and 2016.
Holmes Stadium is named to honor the generous gift from Stephen P. Holmes '79, Chairman and CEO of Wyndham Worldwide and also includes Graham Field (field hockey and women's lacrosse). Emmitt Field was rededicated as such in 2008 in honor of lead donor Richard Emmitt '67, General Partner at The Vertical Group.
