NJ / NY Gotham FC acquired defender Ali Krieger and goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris from Orlando Pride in exchange for a 2022 NWSL Draft first choice, a 2023 NWSL Draft natural third choice and $ 50,000 in Allocation Money.

“We are very grateful to Ashlyn and Ali, two players who have been so used to our club and community, so this was an extremely difficult decision,” said Pride General Manager Ian Fleming in a press release from the club.

“But we believe this will be in the long-term best interests of Ashlyn, Ali and Pride. We wish them nothing but the best in their new opportunity with Gotham FC. Every decision we make is not made in a vacuum, and with these acquired assets, we will continue to work hard to develop our list to best position this club for success and take a championship to Orlando. ”

Harris leaves Pride as the club’s standout leader through the ages, recording 89 games in all competitions during her six-year tenure. She was selected as No. 2 in the 2015 NWSL Expansion Draft, and stood as one of the organization’s first players.

She also served as team captain during the 2017 season.

Krieger joined Pride for the first time in 2017 and recorded a total of 86 appearances since signing. She served as the team’s co – captain since 2019, winning the NWSL Team of the Month awards four times and the NWSL’s best XI in both 2017 and 2019.

“On behalf of the club and the Orlando community, we would like to thank Ashlyn and Ali for their commitment and leadership at Pride over the past six years,” Orlando Pride owner and chairman Mark Wilf said in a news release.

“They have both been fantastic ambassadors for our organization as well as fantastic players. We wish them the best of luck in the next chapter of their careers. As we move forward, we continue to be very optimistic about the future as we build pride on long – term success on the pitch.”
