Orlando Pride Waive Defender Poliana

Orlando Pride has waived defender Poliana Barbosa Medeiros. 

Poliana, 27, was acquired by the Pride in February 2018. Last year, the Brazilian international appeared in 10 matches and totaled 11 shots over her 694 minutes. 

Following the conclusion of the 2018 season, Poliana expressed a desire to return to her home country of Brazil and the two sides agreed to mutually part ways to fulfill her request. 

“On behalf of the Pride, I want to thank Poliana for her contributions and wish her the best of luck as she explores a new playing opportunity,” Orlando Pride General Manager Erik Ustruck said. 

The Pride begin play their fourth season in the National Women’s Soccer League in April. Season and group ticket packages are now available at orlando-pride.com/tickets or by calling (855) ORL-CITY.
