Brody began is professional career in 2016 signing a contract with the Real Monarchs. He appeared in more than 100 matches in four seasons with the Monarchs. Brody was loaned to FC Pinzgau Saalfelden in Austria’s third division. He scored four goals in 16 matches for FC Pinzgau Saalfelden.

“When I joined the RSL Academy in Casa Grande, Arizona at the age of 16 years old, the dream was always to find a way to play for the first team at Rio Tinto Stadium,” Brody said. “The last two seasons have seen that dream realized, so I simply couldn’t be happier to extend my career at Real Salt Lake.”
Brody finished his rookie season with two assists in 12 starts and sixteen games played. Through 11 games and 10 starts in 2022, Brody has been a part of four clean sheets. He has rotated between working as a left back and outside wingback this season.
Real Salt Lake returns home next Saturday, May 14, as they host Austin F.C. with kickoff slated for 7:30 p.m.
