Baltimore’s New Amateur Soccer Club Makes Its Home at Latrobe Park in Locust Point

Baltimore City F.C., a new men’s amateur soccer club, launched earlier this year, with the team playing home games at Banner Field at Latrobe Park in Locust Point. The club plays in the Maryland Major Soccer League, but founder Nicholas Siler is hoping it will elevate to semiprofessional status in the coming year. The long-term goal is to grow the team and have it play in the USL Championship, the second tier of professional soccer in the United States.

Siler and his team, including coaching staff Joe Nixon and Charles Slater, scouted for players at local leagues and pickup soccer games. The team currently sits in third place in their four-team division, and Baltimore City F.C. is hoping to add a youth development program over the summer, as well as launching a women’s club. The club is looking to add more sponsors and generate income by selling jerseys.

Siler hopes the team will become Baltimore City’s team, and plans to keep all home games within the city. He has a business plan in place and will be speaking with investors in the near future. While the long-term goal is the reach the USL, right now, Siler is focused on seeing Baltimore City F.C. achieve measures of success.
