The DMV Gunners are a semi-professional soccer team based in Westminster, Maryland.


The team is a Major Arena Soccer League 3 (MASL 3) member. MASL3 is a North American indoor soccer league that serves as the developmental league of the Major Arena Soccer League and MASL2. The league started in 2020. Major Arena Soccer League started in 2008 and Major Arena Soccer League 2 started in 2017.


The Gunners play their home games at Carroll Indoor Sports Center. The venue is in its 30th season of indoor soccer. There are three soccer/lacrosse fields and one basketball/volleyball court.


Food & Beverage 3

There is a simple concession stand located in one of the Carroll Indoor Sports Center's buildings. There are many options at a fair value. It still may be a good idea to eat before a game if you want more than snack bar offerings.


Atmosphere 3

This is a normal indoor recreation field that we see all over the country. It is a simple setup with very little seating. There are a couple of rows of stands near the arena glass. The team also set up folding chairs for extra fans. there will be many fans standing around as well.


Neighborhood 4

Westminster, a far suburb of Baltimore, is in a traditional suburban setting. Baugher’s Restaurant and Farm Market is located nearby and is one of the best family-type restaurants around and offers no better place to buy fresh produce. We also like to stop by one of the few Roy Roger's fast food restaurants when in the area.


Downtown Westminster is also not far away. Here you can find some good choices such as O’Lordan’s Irish Pub and Restaurant and Maggie’s.


Fans 3

Many of the fans are friends or families of the players. You may also see participants from the other fields stopping by to check in on the action.


Access 4

Route 140 is the main route from the Baltimore area towards Westminster and stems from the end of Baltimore’s I-795. Access to Baltimore, Washington D.C., and central Pennsylvania is fairly easy.


The parking lot at the Carroll Indoor Sports Center can get very busy with all of the youth games competing, as well as the nearby fun center. You may want to get there early as the lot can be a busy one at times.


The Gunners play in the building closest to the road. There is a very small entrance to that building.


Return on Investment 4

Tickets start at $12 ($6 for students) which is a decent value. One could say it is too high, but we think supporting an up-and-coming organization like the Gunners is worth a couple extra bucks. There are also options for season tickets which could bring the cost down even more.


Extras 2

There are so many things going on at the Carroll Indoor Sports Center, that you may want to set aside some time to watch one of the other games that are going on.


Players Fun Zone is the nearby amusement center that offers laser tag, arcade games, bumper cars, mini golf, and much more, so you may want to stop in there before or after a Gunners match.


Final Thoughts

The DMV Gunners is a simple sporting event to watch but it gives the Westminster area a nice minor league type of affair to enjoy.
