North Texas SC Signs Open Trialist Leonard Londe to an MLS NEXT Pro Contract


FRISCO, Texas (December 20, 2023) – North Texas SC has announced today the signing of open trialist Leonard Londe for the upcoming 2024 MLS NEXT Pro season with club a option for the 2025 season.

Londe becomes the sixth open trialist North Texas SC has signed since 2019.

Prior to attending North Texas SC’s open tryouts, Londe earned a two-month trial with Premier League’s Sheffield United F.C. from May through July 2023.

The Grapevine, Texas native, played for the FC Dallas Youth system from 2020-21 competing in the CCSAI Classic League of Dallas.

“We have again shown the importance of our open tryouts. Leo was a standout in our highly competitive search for talent across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex,” said North Texas SC Head Coach John Gall. “He has impressed us with his abilities as an attacking minded player that can play in multiple positions. We are looking forward to getting him in and working with the rest of the players who have the mentality to succeed.”
