Victor Bezerra signs with Chicago Fire

Indiana forward Victor Bezerra, who announced at the end of the season that he was leaving school, signed a Homegrown contract with the Chicago Fire this week.

“We are very happy that Victor has decided to return to Chicago to begin his professional career with his hometown club,” Chicago Fire FC Technical Director Sebastian Pelzer said in a statement. “Victor has not only proven himself as a goal-scorer and chance-creator at every level in which he has played, but he has also been disciplined in his pursuit of becoming a professional soccer player. After laying a solid foundation in our Academy, the coaches at Indiana University have been instrumental in helping him continue to develop as a person and as a player, and we look forward to working with him to help him reach his potential.”

A native of Chicago, Bezerra finished his college career with 28 goals in 57 games, adding 12 assists. He played for the Fire Academy prior to moving to the Big Ten program.

"“I want to thank all my friends, family and coaches, but especially the Chicago Fire,” Bezerra said in a press release. “Every day that I wear this crest, I’ll be working my hardest to make sure that all of the trust that the coaches put in me is rewarded. Growing up here and representing this Club means the world to me and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”
