Maryland Major Soccer League

The Maryland Major Soccer League (MMSL) has been the state's premier amateur adult soccer league for nearly a century.  For decades, the league played under the authority of the Baltimore City Parks & Recreation. In 1965, the clubs in the league established the MMSL as an independent, volunteer organization.  It has featured dozens of high-profile collegiate and professional soccer players with its clubs winning  cup championhips at the state, regional and national level.  MMSL is affiliated with USASA as a member of the Maryland State Soccer Association.  The leagues plays in Baltimore City and the Counties of Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Harford & Howard.

Among the distinguished players/administrators of MMSL are J. Eugene Ringsdorf, Raymond "Granny" Kraft & Nick Kropfelder who have been inducted in the US Soccer Hall of Fame, Anna Steffen & F. Patrick Healey who have been inducted in the US Adult Soccer Hall of Fame.  Mr. Ringsdorf also served as President of the United States Soccer Federation.  Many players, coaches & administrators fill the ranks of the Maryland Soccer Hall of Fame.
