San Antonio FC announced on Thursday the club has added midfielder Shandon Hopeau on loan from Seattle Sounders FC to their 2021 season roster.
Hopeau joins SAFC from the Seattle Sounders organization, where he’s played since 2016. He’s posted five goals and recorded four assists and 23 key passes in 28 appearances with the Seattle Sounders 2 – now the Tacoma Defiance in 2019.
“As a staff, we are delighted to add Shandon to the SAFC Family and we appreciate the Seattle Sounders for accommodating the loan,” said SAFC Head Coach Alen Marcina. “Shandon is a young, dynamic, attacking player with the ability to consistently beat players off the dribble and get beyond the opponent’s last line. He also possesses off-the-ball commitment to pressing actions, and we look forward to working with him for the 2021 season.”
The addition of Hopeau brings SAFC’s roster to 21.
San Antonio FC will open the 2021 season on May 1 against Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC at Toyota Field.
