Protagonist Soccer and Maryland Major Soccer League Announce Media Partnership
Protagonist Soccer is pleased to announce that our organization and Maryland Major Soccer League have entered into a media partnership. The goals of this relationship are to bring more attention to this vital league and to expand the coverage provided by Protagonist Soccer to MMSL, its member clubs, and players.
Now almost four months in, Protagonist Soccer has continued to blossom into a primary provider of coverage in lower tier soccer media. The goal of the organization has always been to grow the game - across the country, in every city and neighborhood - through superior coverage. Without a doubt, Protagonist Soccer believes that regional soccer leagues are the primary means to sustain this growth. These leagues underpin the entire the national soccer pyramid and should be given the same level of media attention as national and professional leagues. Protagonist Soccer is seeking to expand the coverage of regional soccer and, in turn, spark more interest among local soccer fans across this country.
Maryland Major Soccer League has existed since 1965, descended from several Baltimore-based local leagues dating back to the 1920s. Led by commissioner Bill George, the league has grown into a model for other regional leagues. With 2 divisions, 19 teams, over 600 players, extending across the state of Maryland and beyond, Maryland Majors is the gold standard for regional soccer excellence. With some of the best known clubs in amateur soccer, MMSL has proven that “amateur” does not mean boring or bland soccer.
Protagonist Soccer looks forward to developing the relationship between our organization and Maryland Majors. We aim to give the best coverage possible, delving into the stories that make regional soccer great. The goal of this agreement will always be to grow the game, by highlighting the excellence of a powerful regional league.
