MIAMI – The Miami FC announced on Thursday it had signed right back Mark Segbers, pending league and federation approval. Segbers joins Miami having been voted to the 2021 USL Championship All-League Second Team this past season at Memphis 901 FC.

“Mark was a stand-out player in USL Championship this past season,” said Miami Head Coach Anthony Pulis. “He is a very dynamic, modern-day right back that provides good quality in possession and consistently produces end products in the attacking third. Also having a player with his ability to transition effectively between attacking and defending moments will be key for us this year.”
Prior to joining Memphis, Segbers spent the 2019 season with Sporting KC II appearing in 30 matches, while scoring one goal and picking up two assists.
“I'm extremely happy to be joining Miami FC for the 2022 season,” said Segbers. “I’m excited to continue the winning tradition this club has had and help bring a championship to the 305. I am wishing my new Miami FC family a safe and happy holidays. Vamos Miami!”
