Nick Hagglund will sign with FC Cincinnati until 2023


FC Cincinnati has announced that defender Nick Hagglund has been recruited again.

Having previously played for Toronto FC, the 29-year-old midfielder has been with FC Cincinnati – his hometown club – since their 2019 expansion season, making 59 appearances and scoring two goals in that time.

Hagglund’s previous contract expired at the end of the 2021 campaign, but Orange and Blue announced on Friday that he would stay at TQL Stadium until 2023, with a club option for another year.

“We are delighted to have Nick back with FC Cincinnati,” said FC Cincinnati general manager Chris Albright in a press release from the club. “He culturally embodies how we want to build our team, and his leadership and experience are important to our group.”

The acquisition of Hagglund is the latest step in a hectic off-season for FC Cincinnati, who are looking to move from the bottom of the overall standings for the first time since becoming an MLS outfit. Last season, they won just four of their 34 games and conceded 74 goals in the league.

The hometown hero is ????!

The Ohio club has received a boost from Albright’s arrival, as well as appointing former Philadelphia Union assistant Pat Noonan as its new head coach. Together they have already recruited goalkeeper Alec Kann, defenders Alvas Powell, Raymon Gaddis, Gustavo Vallecilla and John Nelson, and forward Dominique Badji. Cincy also picked up Ian Murphy and Roman Celentano in the MLS SuperDraft recently.

Noonan’s team opens its 2022 MLS campaign away at Austin FC on February 26 before taking on DC United.
