New York City FC Signs Andres Jasson to Homegrown Contract
New York City FC today announced forward Andres Jasson has signed his first professional contract with the Club becoming the 5th Homegrown signing in NYCFC history.
During his time in the Club’s Academy, Jasson helped bring home three pieces of silverware including the 2017 Generation Adidas Cup and back-to-back US Soccer Development Academy U-19 National Championships. The forward won the Golden Boot Award for the DA’s Eastern Conference in 2019 and was named NYCFC’s Academy Player of the Year during the same season.
His stellar year ended with being one of four former NYCFC Academy players to represent the United States during the 2019 U-17 World Cup alongside Joe Scally, Tayvon Gray and Gio Reyna.
Jasson joined the Club’s preseason in 2020 and appeared in both matches at Florida Cup 2020 against Corinthians and Palmeiras where he registered an assist. The Connecticut native got on the scoresheet with a brace against Orange County SC in a 2-1 win.
