New England Revolution Revs II

Verfurth promoted from Revs II, signs MLS contract

The Revolution have announced they have signed and promoted Revs II defender Collin Verfurth to the first team. As per club policy, details of the contract signing were not announced.

The 24-year-old center back is the first Revs II player to receive an MLS contract. Revs II, which plays in USL League One, has yet to play a match due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But Verfurth has impressed over the last couple of weeks, according to Revolution head coach Bruce Arena.

“Collin made a good impression on our staff and players over the past two weeks, and it became apparent to us that he would be a good addition to our roster,” Arena said. “We anticipate that Collin will continue to contribute to Revs II as well as offer important depth to our backline.”

Verfurth played his rookie season with Loudoun United in the second division USL Championship last year, making 22 starts as well as one appearance off the bench. In addition, he had two appearances with DC United during its international friendlies last year.

He was a four-year starter at Virginia Tech, scoring nine goals in 72 matches.

The Revs roster now stands at 27 players with Verfurth’s inclusion.
