SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Real Salt Lake has officially announced the contract extension of striker Rubio Rubin who will be with the Claret and Cobalt through at least the year 2024.

Rubin, 25, has signed a long-term contract extension through 2024 with a club option in 2025. Rubin was originally signed by RSL in January to a one year deal, however, his recent form to start the 2021 season has warranted him further protection.

Thus far, Rubin is credited with 4 goals and 2 assists in 12 appearances for RSL this season.

“I’m thankful to Real Salt Lake for this opportunity. It has been a long time since I can say a place has been my home and I look forward to continue doing the things I’ve been doing – scoring goals for this club and for the fans,” Rubin said. “Ultimately, I want to help the team win and be successful and hopefully one day winning MLS Cup. We have those ambitions as a team and I’m excited to have a place that I can work for an extended amount where I can enjoy the process of getting better every day to reach for those goals.”

RSL also noted the importance of Rubin’s community work within the six months that he has been with the club. Teammates and coaches have praised Rubin for his ability to unite the club and create a stronger locker room.

“I’m happy for Rubio. With his quality of play, I think it’s deserved,” RSL Head Coach Freddy Juarez said. “He is still at a young age to continue to learn and battle, but he’s a good person that is great for the locker room and for the club. Not only did we get a good soccer player locked up for a few years, but we get a good human being that can continue to lead the culture in the right direction. I’m happy that he is going to be able to call Salt Lake home.”

RSL’s Next Fixture

RSL will host LA Galaxy on Wednesday, July 21st with kickoff scheduled for 8 p.m.

The match will be available to stream for free via the KSL Sports & KSL 5 TV apps or on KSL Sports dot com.
