Angel City signs Orlando Pride forward Sydney Leroux

Sydney Leroux is headed to Angel City after a bombshell trade. 

The NWSL expansion team and the Orlando Pride agreed to a deal on Wednesday that sends the forward to Los Angeles in exchange for draft picks and allocation money. 

Orlando will receive Angel City’s natural first round pick in the 2024 NWSL College Draft, $75,000 in NWSL allocation money, and a potential $10,000 allocation money bonus this year and in 2023 based on Leroux’s performance.

“I am so excited to be a part of Angel City and everything being built with this club,” said Leroux in a press release from Angel City. 

“The atmosphere I felt playing at the Banc [of California Stadium] on Mother’s Day was unbelievable. It really feels like I’m coming home, between going to UCLA and living in LA. Angel City is truly putting women’s soccer on the map in Los Angeles and it shows if you invest in women, great things will happen. I am excited to be a part of that.”
