SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Real Salt Lake has signed Andrew Brody to their 23rd Homegrown contract in club history, the club announced today.

Brody, 25, has been with the Real Monarchs since 2016 where he is the all time games leader with 100, 99 of those games came in the regular season, his lone playoff game was in 2018.

“Ever since joining the Academy at 16 the goal was always to sign for the first team,” Brody said. “Although it took longer than I expected, I couldn’t be happier to finally achieve that goal. I’m excited to get going and show the team what I can do.”

Brody spent two years with the RSL Arizona Academy before joining the University of Louisville where he was a standout for the Cardinal scoring 9 goals in 61 appearances.

During his four year stint with the Monarchs, Brody spent one season on loan to Austrian third division side FC Pinzgau in 2019. Upon his return to the club, Brody has been a key contributor to the Real Monarchs throughout the 2020 season.

Brody joins Bode Davis and Noah Powder to sign first team contracts with Real Salt Lake this season. All three signings have come within the last week.

“Andrew is a great example of success in our development pipeline.  He’s a player that came up through our Academy and had success in the Academy.  He went to college and had success in college.  He came in with the Monarchs and did well with the Monarchs,” RSL General Manager Elliot Fall said.  “He was on fringe of playing at the MLS level and went to Austria for six months and was great.  He took that next step in his development and came back a different player.  He’s earned it and we are proud and excited to have his name on an RSL kit.”

Brody will remain with the Monarchs throughout the 2020 season before joining the first team ahead of the 2021 season.
