SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio FC has signed forward Justin Dhillon for the 2021 USL Championship season, the club announced on Friday.
Dhillon joins San Antonio from the Seattle Sounders (MLS) where he spent the 2020 season while being a part of the 2019 MLS Cup Champion Sounders team. He posted 12 goals, two assists and 13 key passes while with the club’s USL Championship affiliate the Tacoma Defiance in 2019.
“We are thrilled to welcome Justin Dhillon to the SAFC family,” said SAFC Head Coach Alen Marcina. “Justin is someone who has been on our radar, and we have tracked him for some time now. He is a great person and goal-scorer who brings an MLS championship-winning mentality and proven USL experience. Justin demonstrates the selfless work and relentless commitment on and off the ball that is essential in our game model. We envision him having a highly productive season in San Antonio.”
Prior to joining the Sounders organization, Dhillon played with LA Galaxy II from 2017 to 2018, scoring nine goals in 39 appearances.
“After seeing the culture of this organization, their vision and ambition made my decision to come to San Antonio an easy one,” said Dhillon. “I’m really excited to come in and build on the club’s success last year, and make an impact in our quest for a championship.”
