KANSAS CITY SIGNS AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL TEAM MIDFIELDER

KANSAS CITY (January 28, 2021) – Kansas City NWSL has finalized a transfer to add Chloe Logarzo from FA WSL side, Bristol City Women to the roster ahead of the team’s first training camp. A 26-year-old veteran of the Australian National Team (nicknamed the Westfield Matildas), the midfielder has signed an agreement through the 2023 NWSL season. Per team and league policies, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“She is very creative, dynamic and highly competitive,” said Head Coach Huw Williams. “She is a player who makes an immediate impact on our team both on and off the field.”

Internationally, Logarzo has been featured with the Westfield Matildas 48 times, making her debut with the senior team at the age of 18 in 2013. Logarzo was a member of the 2016 Australian Olympic team that took Brazil to penalties in the quarterfinal round. She also helped the Matildas defeat the United States for the first time and win the 2017 Tournament of Nations. Most recently, Logarzo featured for her home country in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Logarzo began her professional career as an 18-year-old playing for Sydney FC of the W-League. Over the course of the next four seasons, she made 40 appearances for her hometown club. In 2014 she made her first trip to the United States to play for the USL W-League Colorado Pride, scoring eight goals, contributing seven assists and earning the USL W-League Rookie of the Year award.

Following that season, Logarzo made stops with the Newcastle Jets (Australia), Eskilstuna United (Sweden) and Avaldsnes (Norway) before returning to Sydney FC in 2017. From 2017-2020 Logarzo appeared 34 times for Sydney and scored eight goals. She was loaned to the NWSL’s Washington Spirit in 2019 before signing her contract to play with Bristol City Women.
