SMSC-Select Soccer History: The South Mississippi Soccer Club (SMSC) is celebrating 36 eyars of existence here on the Gulf Coast. SMSC was established in 1978 as a full member of the Mississippi Soccer Association (MSA), which was formed in 1974 with the United States Youth Soccer Association. In 1982, SMSC started the original select soccer program in our area. The founding fathers of this program were volunteers. The original SMSC select teams were named “UNITED” to signify opportunity for taleneted players from any area to play. Other team names were “Coke United” and “Coke Express”, after the local Coca Cola bottling company generously became a sponsor of the program. In 2012, SMSC/FC UNITED merged with Biloxi Real Mississippi Select program to form the largest pool of soccer players on the Gulf Coast with a membership of over 2000 players. Become a part of the soccer heritage in the most successful program on our Gulf Coast!
South MS Soccer Club and FC UNITED would like to thank everyone for coming out to tryouts. It was an incredible turnout of very skilled athletes. The process of evaluating and choosing a team that will play together over ten months is challenging. We appreciate your patience as the coaches work through this process. Teams are being announced and published on team pages. Stay tuned to this website for additional information.
