INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Indy Eleven welcomed two Hoosier soccer greats to their roster on Wednesday afternoon: Forward Mike Ambersley and Midfielder Brad Ring.
The duo become the ninth and tenth players on the roster.
Ambersley was selected by FC Dallas in the MLS SuperDraft after graduating in 2005. Since that time, he’s played everywhere from the Rochester Raging Rhinos to the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
Ring, meanwhile, spent the past five seasons in the MLS. He was originally drafted by the San Jose Earthquakes.
“To have proven professionals like Mike Ambersley and Brad Ring come back to the Hoosier State to grow Indy Eleven from the ground up speaks volumes to the type of players we’re looking to build around,” said Indy Eleven Head Coach/Director of Soccer Operation Juergen Sommer in a press release on Wednesday. “Brad and Mike know the work that must go into forming a winning team and greatly appreciate the bond the club will have in the community, and they are ready to contribute on both fronts immediately.”
Indy Eleven heads to Arizona at the start of February for preseason camp.
