Ebenezer “Eby” Ackon comes to San Diego after most recently playing with San Antonio FC. He was a standout during his college career at Bowling Green State University and was originally drafted by MLS side Chicago Fire during the 2019 MLS SuperDraft. Unfortunately, Ackon could not be registered because the club had exceeded their quota for international players. Prior to coming to the United States, he had a short stint at Ebusua Dwarfs in the Ghana Premier League.
“I’m super excited to gain the trust from the staff and I appreciate them for giving me and my family this huge opportunity,” said Ackon. “I can’t wait to integrate myself with such a great organization and I’m ready to give it my all for the club and Loyal fans.”
