College soccer is in trouble. The avenue is no longer the predominant way to make it to Major League Soccer, and the college game and SuperDraft are becoming less and less relevant. Most college players drafted don’t see a minute in MLS and end up playing in the lower tiers or not at all. In 2019, only 28 of 76 drafted players made an MLS roster, and only three played in 20 or more games.
But University of Maryland Soccer’s Head Coach, Sasho Cirovski, has been trying to change this. For almost ten years, he has been working to expand the college season.
