The SoccerPlex Stadium
History of the SoccerPlex Stadium
In 1998 a group of soccer parents led by Maureen and John Hendricks, the founder of Discovery Communications established the Maryland Soccer Foundation (MSF), a non-profit corporation whose mission was to build, manage and maintain the 24-field soccer complex with a championship stadium. The stadium sits in a natural bowl with a paved lit plaza surrounding it. The field is a premier sand-based under drain construction that drains an average of eight inches of water an hour.

On April 20, 1865, George Atzerodt, a co-conspirator in the assassination of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln was captured in Germantown. He was assigned by John Wilkes Booth to assassinate U.S. Vice President Andrew Johnson, but fled instead. He was captured at the farm of his cousin Hartman Richter on Schaeffer Road – the very same address where the stadium is located. Mr. Atzerodt was hanged on July 7, 1865 along with Mary Surratt, Lewis Powell, and David Herold at Fort McNair in Washington D.C.
