Maryland Soccerplex is a sports complex in Germantown, Maryland, United States, although its mailing address states Boyds, Maryland. There are nineteen natural grass fields, three artificial fields, and eight indoor convertible basketball/volleyball courts. Two miniature golf courses, a driving range, and a swim center have recently been added.

Overview[edit]

The main stadium holds 4,000 and was home to the Washington Freedom, a team in Women's Professional Soccer, the successor to the defunct Women's United Soccer Association in which the team originally played. The SoccerPlex now hosts the Washington Spirit of the National Women's Soccer League and the Washington Spirit Reserves (formerly DC United Women) of the W-League.[2][3][4]

The Soccerplex is home to many other events: D.C. United Open Cup matches, Real Maryland, NCAA Conference Championships, Discovery Cup, and the Mid-Atlantic Cup.
