National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) outfit, Utah Royals FC have announced the signing of Nigeria forward, Ifeoma Onumonu.

Onumonu linked up with Salt Lake City-based side from reigning NWSL champion, Gotham FC for $40,000.

The striker becomes the 15th player on the 2024 expansion of Utah side’s roster.

The 29-year-old is expected to join her new teammates for pre-season camping late next month.

Onumonu spent three seasons with Gotham FC.

“This is an amazing opportunity to be coached by one of the best who ever did it, tapping into Amy Rodriguez’s history with the NWSL and her being a former No. 9.

“Having the conversation with Amy and Sporting Director, Kelly Cousins was incredibly important to me, hearing their vision and understanding the commitment and investment in providing the best for the athletes is what persuaded me to play for the Royals,” she said.

She was part of Super Falcons squad to the 2023 Women’s World Cup co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
