Kansas City Current Re-Sign Kate Del Fava

December 20, 2022 – National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) – Kansas City Current News Release

KANSAS CITY – The Kansas City Current have re-signed Kate Del Fava. The versatile third-year defender is now signed with the club through the 2024 season.

“Kate has been an incredible asset to this team throughout 2022 including the postseason,” said general manager Camille Levin Ashton. “We’ve seen her grow immensely and we are excited to have her with us for the next two seasons.”

Del Fava was picked in the second round of the 2020 NWSL Draft (12th overall) by the Utah Royals. She made six appearances for the Royals in the inaugural Challenge Cup and 2020 Fall Series. One of several players to be assigned to Kansas City’s roster in 2021, Del Fava played 393 minutes over nine games in the team’s inaugural season.

The veteran defender enjoyed her best season in 2022. Moving from a center back position to a wing back, she was one of only two players to play in every match, regular and post season, for the Current. She had two assists in the regular season and scored the dramatic game-winning goal in the 10th minute of added time against the Houston Dash in the NWSL Quarterfinal.

“What we’ve accomplished over the past two seasons is something I’m incredibly proud to be a part of.” said Kate Del Fava. “I’ve grown so much here in Kansas City as a player and a person. Coming off of an NWSL Championship appearance, I’m so excited to be back with this group and can’t wait to see what the future holds!”
