FRISCO, Texas – FC Dallas has signed center back Amet Korça (pronounced Ah-met KOR-chah) from Croatian first-division side HNK Gorica to a one-year contract with club options for the 2024 and 2025 seasons, the club announced today. Korca will begin preseason with the club pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC).
Korça, 22, was born and raised in Arlington, TX where he attended The Oakridge School. He joins FC Dallas after spending three-and-a-half years in Croatia’s first and second division leagues, most recently playing for HNK Gorica.
