VANCOUVER, BC – One of the icons of eMLS is back for the 2023 season and ready to reclaim his crown.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC have re-signed former eMLS League Series champion Gordon “Fiddle” Thornsberry to represent the club in the 2023 eMLS season.
“I am ecstatic to be back with the club for another season," said Fiddle. "I'm looking forward to the opportunity to bring back trophies this upcoming season, not only for myself, but for Whitecaps FC.”
The accomplished FIFA player will also participate in the FIFA 23 Global Series on the way to the 2023 FIFAe World Cup.
Fiddle is one of the marquee names in the North American FIFA community. During the 2020 eMLS season, he won both the 2020 League Series One and League Series Two titles to finish top of the regular season standings. He also went on to win the EA Sports FIFA 20 Summer Cup Series in North America as the sole representative from eMLS, crowning him the best player on the continent for that year.
Over the last year, Fiddle also represented the United States at the FIFAe Nations Cup Qualifiers alongside D.C. United’s KingCJ0.
Prior to entering eMLS, Fiddle represented French powerhouse Paris St. Germain, where he won the Gfinity FIFA 18 US Spring Cup.
