The American Dream: ISM Edition

Soccer in America is growing at a huge rate, with the MLS having the 7th highest average attendance in worldwide professional soccer.


After the MLS, there are many other successful divisions below that, with the USL Championship, USL 1 & 2, and the UPSL.

American soccer also offers players a different dynamic when compared to football in Europe, this is through the use of the MLS SuperDraft that takes place annually. This offers a talented bunch of college graduates the opportunity to be transferred to an MLS club!


At ISM, we run a successful soccer programme called the Inter Orlando Academy, which strives to Identify, Develop and Promote promising soccer players between the ages of 15 and 25. From foundation in 2017, we have successfully developed 15 players and given them the platform to sign professional contracts at clubs around the world, as well as many more reaching college level in America.

With many colleges offering aspiring athletes the opportunity to earn lucrative scholarships and play in-front of thousands of fans each week, the chance of earning one of these scholarships can be extremely difficult.


This is where ISM comes along..
