TUCSON, Ariz. – FC Tucson announced on Monday that it had signed forward Guillermo Delgado for the 2019 USL League One season. Per club policy, the details of the contract will not be released.
“I am thrilled to be joining the FC Tucson family in its first professional season,” said Delgado. “Having played against them in one of my USL League Two seasons, I was able to see how successful and competitive the club is. I am looking forward to leaving everything on the pitch this season!”
Delgado, a native of Madrid, Spain, comes to Tucson with familiar ties to the club having played for Head Coach Darren Sawatzky in 2015 with Sounders FC U-23. An All-American at the University of Delaware, Delgado registered 49 goals in 78 appearances for the Fightin’ Blue Hens during his collegiate career. He graduated from Delaware in 2016 as the school’s all-time leader in goals, assists, game-winning goals and shots.
Delgado was drafted 27th overall in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft by the Chicago Fire, but never featured for the club. The 24-year-old most recently played for Rio Grande Valley FC in the USL Championship, making seven appearances and scoring once during the 2018 campaign.
Delgado joins midfielder Moshe Perez as Tucson's second signing ahead of the 2019 season.
