Washington DC – DMV





The history of soccer in the United States has numerous different roots. The modern-day game is often considered to have been brought to the United States through Ellis Island during the 1870s. However, recent research has shown that the modern game entered America in the 1850s through New Orleans when Scottish, Irish, and German immigrants brought the game with them. It was in New Orleans that some of the first organized games that used modern English rules were held.





The Diaspora World Cup is something new. It’s not just about soccer and it started here at the Germantown SoccerPlex in Maryland with only eight countries of the Diaspora participating in the league. It now brings together the world's diaspora of over 200 countries in the DMV to build of coalition to committed soccer players, colleges and universities students to solve the world most pressing challenge: Illiteracy. We focus on making The Diaspora World Cup an enjoyable experience during our regular season from spring to summer each year.
