Orlando Pride Waives Forward Chioma Ubogagu

ORLANDO, Fla. (Aug. 29, 2019) - Orlando Pride has waived forward Chioma Ubogagu, the Club announced today. Ubogagu will be leaving the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) to pursue a playing opportunity in Europe. 

“On behalf of everyone at the Pride, we’d like to thank Chioma for her contributions to the Club over the last three seasons,” Orlando Pride General Manager Erik Ustruck said. “We wish her the best of luck in this next career move.”

Ubogagu, 26, joined the Pride via trade with the Houston Dash on January 23, 2017. Over two and a half seasons with the Pride, the forward totaled 12 goals and seven assists for Orlando. A member of the England Women’s National Team, Ubogagu made 57 appearances as a member of the Pride and departs tied for third in Club history for the statistic.


UPDATE: March 19, 2020 - In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance to postpone events involving more than 50 people over the next eight weeks, Major League Soccer has extended the postponement of its matches during this period of time. MLS remains focused on playing the entire 2020 season and is evaluating all options, including pushing back the end of the season and playing MLS Cup in December, as the league did prior to the 2019 season. The league is also identifying other available dates. Throughout this process, MLS will continue to prioritize the safety of our fans, players, employees and partners and to coordinate with federal and local public health authorities as well as other sporting organizations..
