6-26-2019 - Maryland Largest and fastest growing soccer club has joined the
Premiership. With a vision to build the largest professional team in Maryland.
IFK has selected the Premiership to steer their team in that direction.
In August of 2013, CSSM Soccer Academy was founded by Head Coach Christopher
Saul. Using his knowledge of the game, through playing and coaching, he began to
expand his club, player by player. Coach Saul used his academy to develop
players individually, in order to assemble premier level squads. The current U16
(1999-2000 born) team was the first full roster team to compete for the club.
Now, under the name of IFK Maryland, the club has grown to over 180 athletes
with club teams that range from ages U8 to U19. IFK Maryland offers a unique,
pro-like club structure that allows players to progress well into their playing
careers. Players will earn the chance to train in front of professional scouts
as the team travels domestically and abroad.
The Men's professional team grew from the ranks of the Maryland Major Semi-Pro
League and has entered some of the most elite tournaments worldwide: Baltimore
Mania, PA Classics, Delaware Rush, EP Cup, the Disney International Showcase,
and in July of 2015, the UMEA Cup in Sweden - and now has grown into the US
PREMIERPHIP! The team is committed to growth and development of all players and
will be sure to continue making noise as the only professional outdoor soccer
team in Maryland. The club now transfer players to top professional European
