The NCAA Division II Men's Soccer Championship has been played since 1972. Prior to 1972, all teams competed in a single class.

The 2013 tournament was a 35-team, single-elimination tournament.

The Division II tournament is structured around the eight NCAA regions (Atlantic, Central, East, Midwest, South, South Central, Southeast, and West). At least two and as many as six teams from each region are selected with no automatic qualifiers given. The selection criteria used is similar to that used in Division I, although one difference is that the RPI is replaced with the Quality of Winning Percentage Index, a more subjective measure.

The first two rounds are played on campus sites with the highest seed usually hosting the regional semis and finals. The winners of each region meet in the third round and/or quarterfinals, with the host being determined by specific criteria or, failing that, geographical rotation. The final two rounds are played at a predetermined site. The 2013 semifinals and final for both the men's and women's Division II tournaments were held at Blanchard Woods Park in Evans, Georgia and hosted by the Peach Belt Conference.[1]
