SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio FC announced on Tuesday it had re-signed midfielder and team captain Victor ‘PC’ Giro to a multi-year contract, pending league and federation approval, the club announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"We are thrilled to welcome PC and his family back,” said SAFC Head Coach Alen Marcina. “He plays an integral part in our team identity through his daily execution of the on-field performance standards. PC inspires his teammates to perform to the best of their abilities and be resilient through adversity."

PC appeared in 18 regular season matches in 2021, compiling 1,221 minutes of action as well as 29 tackles and 20 chances created. The Brazilian helped lead the Alamo City club to its third postseason appearance in team history along with its first trip to the Western Conference Final of the USL Championship Playoffs.

Additionally, PC was an integral member of the SAFC roster in 2020, appearing 14 of the club’s 16 regular season matches, compiling 1,254 minutes played. In addition to his goal and two assists, PC jointly led SAFC in key passes (23) while ranking second on the club in tackles (39).

The 27-year-old originally joined SAFC after spending the 2017-19 seasons in Major League Soccer with Vancouver Whitecaps FC and Orlando City SC, respectively. The midfielder made more than 30 appearances combined between Orlando and Vancouver. He also made 45 appearances across parts of two seasons with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers before being sold to the Tampa Bay Rowdies in the middle of the 2016 season. PC would go on to make 14 appearances for Tampa Bay while adding one goal and one assist to close the season for the Rowdies. Overall, the midfielder recorded nine goals and eight assists in 59 matches with the two clubs.  

PC is a youth product of the famous Corinthians academy in his native Brazil and made his debut for the Corinthians B team in 2013. While with Corinthians, he also spent time on loan with Beleneses of the Portuguese first division.
