Mauricio Pereyra has played a leading role for Orlando City over the past four seasons and isn’t set to leave the club anytime soon.
Pereyra was re-signed by the Lions on Wednesday, which will keep him under contract through the 2024 MLS season. The Uruguayan midfielder was out of contract following this season, but will remain at Exploria Stadium into the near future.
“Mauricio has been our leader both on and off the field since he joined the club and he did a fantastic job as captain for us last year,” Orlando’s EVP of soccer operations and general manager Luis Muzzi said in a release. “The example he sets with his professionalism and what he means to our group cannot be overstated. We’re so happy to have Mauricio back with us for the next couple of seasons.”
The 33-year-old helped the Lions win their first-ever trophy in club history this season as Orlando City defeated Sacramento Republic to win the 2022 U.S. Open Cup. Orlando City will also take part in the 2023 Concacaf Champions League and aim to return to the MLS playoffs.
Pereyra has registered four goals and 33 assists in 83 matches for the Lions since arriving to MLS in 2019.
