Goalkeeper recorded a career-best eight shutouts as Tampa Bay claimed Eastern Conference Title

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Rowdies announced on Thursday the club had re-signed goalkeeper Evan Louro to a one-year deal for the 2021 season.

“We are so pleased that Evan will continue to build on last year, as he was a pivotal part in our fantastic defensive record,” said Rowdies Head Coach Neill Collins. “Evan is an excellent goalkeeper, but it’s his winning mentality that really gives him and our team that extra edge. He really bought in to what the Rowdies are all about, and I expect him to continue to build on that.”

Louro started every game of the 2020 Championship season for the Rowdies as the club claimed the Eastern Conference Title in the postseason and recorded a career-best eight clean sheets across the regular season and playoffs. Before joining the Rowdies, the 24-year-old had played for the New York Red Bulls II and was a familiar opponent of the Rowdies club. During the three years with the Red Bulls, Louro had 79 starts and played more than 7,000 minutes.

“I’m super excited and honored to be back in St. Petersburg for the upcoming 2021 season,” said Louro. “I am just ready to get back to work and pick up where we left off.”
