Off to a Good Start

Fields Set for Rowland & Morton Cups

Rowland Cup enters its 107th year. (18 January) We played a special match day with 16 sides competing to determine where they will be placed for this cup season. The first round/playoff of the Rowland Cup saw the winners advance while those eliminated will compete for the Morton Cup. Both competitions move into group play that will take place over the next several weekends.

The Rowland Cup, Maryland's oldest championship first played in 1914, has defending champion Christos FC paired with the Baltimore Kickers, Columbia FC and Maryland Internationals Athletics FC in its group. The other bracket has last season's Morton Cup winner All Stars United along with Colombia FC, Steel Pulse FC and Yinz United. The top two in each group advance to the semifinals. The winner moves on to represent the state in the Region I qualifiers for the Werner Fricker Cup.

The Morton Cup enters its ninth season of competition. Group A includes DC Flames, Deportivo Club de Districtonia, Dream Team FC and Frederick Spires FC. In Group B we have Columbia FC 2, JA Raiders, Motorik FC Alexandria and TrendSetters FC.

The schedules will be updated and can be found at the tabs above. This is the place to keep track on all that is the MSSA Cups. You can also follow us on Twitter @marylandsoccer.
