The Maryland Super Soccer League (MSSL) is back in full swing on Sunday, March 26. The 2022 Fall MSSL season lived up to its billing, emerging as the most exciting league to watch in the state, and the spring 2023 exhibition promises an even more compelling watch.

The MSSL carries the guard of hosting three winners of the 2023 edition for the most prestigious competitions in the state. Rowland Cup, Stewart Cup, Morton Cup.

The First Division boasts the caliber of clubs that have gone on to secure the 2023 Rowland Cup and the 2023 Stewart Cup.

Christos bypassed the newly acquired Maryland Bobcats side Steel Pulse in the final to claim the 2023 Rowland Cup, while Sure Sports Claimed the 2023 Stewart Cup.
