Toronto FC announced Friday that defender Drew Moor has re-signed a one-year extension plus an option with the reigning MLS Cup champions.
“Few words can express what it means to me and my family to continue representing Toronto FC. We have experienced a lot of special moments both on and off the field in Toronto, the club has given us so much these past two years and there is nowhere else we’d want to be,” said Toronto FC defender Drew Moor. “I can’t wait to get back to work with my teammates, coaches and staff ahead of the 2018 season as we defend our MLS Cup championship.”
Moor, 33, made 34 combined appearances (MLS regular season, Canadian Championship and MLS Cup playoffs), scoring two goals with one assist, helping Toronto FC become the first team in league history to win “The Treble” (MLS Cup, MLS Supporters’ Shield and Canadian Championship) this past season. Moor has made a combined 384 appearances (MLS league and MLS Cup playoffs) with 27 goals and 8 assists in 13 seasons in MLS. Currently, Moor ranks 8th on the MLS all-time appearances list (regular season) for outfield players. He joined Toronto FC as the club’s first free agent signing on December 16, 2015 after spending seven seasons with the Colorado Rapids. Moor was part of the Rapids 2010 MLS Cup Championship winning team, which also won the 2010 MLS Eastern Conference title and was named to the 2015 MLS AT&T All-Star Game roster.
“Drew has been an important part of our club’s successes for the past two seasons. Both sides eagerly wanted to ensure this partnership would continue beyond 2017,” said Toronto FC Sr. Vice-President, Soccer Operations & General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. “He and his family chose Toronto two years ago as a free agent. We’re happy they have committed to stay and that we’re able to keep a man of great character as well as an important, experienced leader as we defend our championship next season.”
Moor was originally drafted by FC Dallas, sixth overall in the 2005 MLS SuperDraft. He began his collegiate career at Furman University before moving to Indiana University. At Indiana, he won back-to-back NCAA National Championships in 2003 and 2004.
