Orlando Pride Signs New Zealand Women’s National Team Defender Ali Riley

ORLANDO, Fla. (Feb. 10, 2020) - Orlando Pride has acquired New Zealand Women’s National Team defender Ali Riley via transfer from German side FC Bayern Munich. Allocation money was used to acquire and sign Riley, who will join the Club on a one year contract with an option for an additional year.

“We’re delighted to finally come to terms with Ali and Bayern, who we’d also like to thank in making this deal happen. We targeted Ali last year and were unable to come to terms but with the new allocation money, it has provided more roster flexibility and allowed us to go after additional players that historically haven’t been available to the NWSL,” Orlando Pride GM Erik Ustruck said.
