MASL 3 Season Four begins tonight

by Scott Ludwig

Major Arena Soccer League 3 begins its fourth season today when four of the seven teams kick off. The campaign will see seven teams battle it out for the league championship. Two of those seven clubs - DMV Gunners and Salisbury Steaks - are expansion teams.

Defending MASL 3 champion NoVA FC will start their new season on the road in a rematch of the 2023 championship game against the Philadelphia Spartans. NoVA is just six days out from capturing their biggest prize to date - the NISA Nation title.

Philadelphia Spartans will be looking to send a message to the league after falling just short of the title last season, losing to NoVA in overtime. Kickoff is set for 7:35 PM at XL Sports World Mt. Laurel.

Expansion side Salisbury Steaks make their debut tonight when they face the Baltimore Kings who went 5-5-0 last season. Game time is scheduled for 7:00 PM at Crown Sports Center.

Second-year club Virginia Marauders will open their season on Sunday when they host the Baltimore Kings.

Fredericksburg Fire and first-year team DMV Gunners will make their season debut next weekend.
