Toronto FC announced today that the club has signed defender Kadin Chung through 2023 with options for 2024 and 2025.
“Kadin has had a good preseason and has earned a spot on our roster,” said Toronto FC Head Coach and Sporting Director Bob Bradley. “He’s coming off a very good season in the CPL with Pacific FC and we think Kadin is going to continue to improve and give us some depth at the right back position.”
Chung, 23, recently completed his third season with Pacific FC of the Canadian Premier League (CPL), where he made 63 appearances (CPL and Canadian Championship), registering two goals and five assists. During the 2021 season, Chung scored one goal and added two assists in 29 appearances as a key member of the team that captured the club's first CPL Championship.
Chung started his career at the Vancouver Whitecaps FC Residency Program in September 2011 before joining Whitecaps FC 2 in August 2015. The British Columbia native made 48 appearances over three seasons (2015-2017) for WFC2 in the United Soccer League (USL) and was ranked 16th on the "USL 20 Under 20" list in 2016. In 2018, Chung joined 1. FC Kaiserslautern II, where he made eight appearances in the Oberliga Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar (Fifth Tier, Germany) before signing with Pacific FC in December 2018.
Internationally, Chung represented Canada at the 2015 Concacaf Men’s U-17 Championship in Honduras, where he started all six games of the tournament. In 2015, he was named the Canada U-17 Male Player of the Year, recognizing his performances and progress as part of Canada Soccer’s National Teams Program. He also represented Canada at the U-20 level when he appeared in a friendly against England on March 27, 2016, and against Antigua at the 2017 Concacaf Men’s U-20 Championship in Costa Rica.
