Major League Soccer expansion team St. Louis CITY SC continues to build their roster ahead of their debut in 2023 with the signing of Arminia Bielefeld player Joakim Nilsson.

The defender joins through the 2026 season, and will play for STL’s MLS NEXT Pro team, ST Louis CITY2, ahead of their inaugural MLS campaign.

He stands as the team’s fourth signing from the German Bundesliga. 

“We have managed to get another top player with tremendous quality and experience on our roster,” said Pfannenstiel in a release.

“Nilsson is the kind of defender any team would want, as he is a natural leader and possesses all the attributes to be successful in any league. He is assertive in 1v1 duels, good in the air and great at building out from the back. We are confident that all his experience and physical attributes will make him one of the best defenders in Major League Soccer.”
