Sporting Kansas City signed goalkeeper Parker Siegfried on loan from USL Championship side Louisville City FC on April 15, 2021, after acquiring Siegfried’s college protected rights from New York City FC in exchange for a natural 2023 MLS SuperDraft third round pick. Siegfried has joined Sporting on loan for the 2021 season on a semi-guaranteed contract for the year.
2021: MLS Regular Season: Did not feature.
A native of Granville, Ohio, Siegfried developed in the Columbus Crew SC Academy and represented the United States at the U-14, U-15 and U-18 youth international levels. He then embarked on a successful college career at Ohio State University, where he logged 72 career appearances and climbed to fourth on the school’s all-time shutout chart with 18 clean sheets. During his time at Ohio State, Siegfried also played two seasons for amateur club Asheville City SC in the National Premier Soccer League.
New York City FC selected Siegfried with the 74th overall pick in the fourth round of the 2020 MLS SuperDraft, but he did not sign with the club. He spent the first half of 2020 in USL League One with South Georgia Tormenta FC before joining Detroit City FC, where he helped the team to the National Independent Soccer Association fall title last October. Siegfried signed for two-time USL Cup champion Louisville in March following a preseason trial with the team.
