NJ/NY Gotham FC signed forward Ifeoma Onumonu to a contract extension, keeping her at the club through the 2025 NWSL season.

She originally joined the team in 2020, in a trade with OL Reign. She has since recorded 14 goals and nine assists in 61 appearances across the regular season, Fall Series and Challenge Cup tournament.

“I’m really excited to sign on long-term with Gotham FC! It’s been a journey already with this club and I’m looking forward to many more years competing to be the best team in the NWSL. The club and community around me has truly made me feel valued as a player,” said Onumonu.

“Although this past year has been a difficult one, the fans never left our side. I’m happy to be fighting for this club and excited about what we’ll be able to accomplish together.”

Her performances in the NWSL propelled her international career, standing as a member of the Nigeria national team. She quickly became a key figure for the team after receiving her first call up in June 2021, playing an integral part in the Women’s African Cup of Nations. 

“Ifeoma Onumonu is a dynamic attacking player who provides a constant threat as a playmaker and goal scorer,” said Gotham FC GM and Head of Soccer Operations Yael Averbuch. 

“Ify is an essential part of our future vision at Gotham FC, and our club is proud to reach an agreement with her on a long-term contract.”
