SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio FC announced on Thursday the club had acquired goalkeeper Nick Marsman on loan from Major League Soccer, pending league and federation approval. Per team policy, terms of the loan were not disclosed.
Marsman spent parts of the last three seasons with Inter Miami CF of MLS, posting six clean sheets in 29 appearances. Prior to joining Miami midway through the 2021 season, the Dutchman spent two years with Feyenoord Rotterdam in the Eredivisie, the top flight in the Netherlands.
“As a staff, we are excited to welcome Nick to the team and thankful to MLS for accommodating the loan,” said SAFC head coach Alen Marcina. “He is a top professional and proven goalkeeper who brings high-level experience and leadership. The addition of Nick to our already strong goalkeeping unit illustrates our ambition to repeat as champions.”
Since making his debut in 2011, Marsman appeared in 136 Eredivisie matches. The 32-year-old saved 73 percent of shots faced in over 12,000 minutes in the league, recording 38 clean sheets and 423 saves. In six UEFA Europa League matches, Marsman made 24 saves and recorded one clean sheet.
Marsman will be available for selection in San Antonio's contest against the Tampa Bay Rowdies this Saturday night at Toyota Field. Under USL Championship rules, he would have to play all five of SAFC's remaining games this regular season to be eligible to compete in the 2023 USL Championship Playoffs, starting in October.
