National champion and TopDrawerSoccer.com Player of the Year Amber Brooks has made a splash by signing with Germany’s Bayern Munich.
Brooks has starred for the North Carolina Tar Heels for the past four years, piling up accolades and building her reputation as a future star. The new women’s professional league (NWSL) was clearly an option for Brooks, but she instead chose to fulfill a dream of playing overseas.
“I am happy to finally announce that I have signed my first professional contract with Bayern Munich! Big thanks to (everyone) who helped make my dream a reality!”
The Germans were well aware of Brooks from her starring international role with the US Soccer program.
Said FCB coach Thomas Worle:
“We initially looked primarily in Europe for a new player, but on a recommendation I stepped up contact with Amber. I am glad that the US U23 Captain joins us now. Amber is combative, defensive multi-way player who loves to compete. I look forward to a talented, ambitious football player.”
