Charlotte FC have signed midfielder Quinn McNeill through the 2022 Major League Soccer season with options on 2023 through 2025. 

He joins the expansion team after spending the 2022 campaign on loan with USL Championship side Charlotte Independence. The two clubs signed an affiliate agreement for the year, allowing players with an MLS contract to be loaned back and forth between teams. 

"Quinn joined us for part of pre-season and really impressed in the training sessions, so we're delighted to sign him to his first professional contract. It’s important for him to get minutes as he continues to develop as a player and we’re thankful to the Independence for taking him on loan for the season,” sporting director Zoran Krneta said in a club press release.

“The Independence have been good partners for us since our inception by providing our players a place to gain important minutes and we look forward to continuing that affiliation throughout the 2022 season.”

McNeill arrived after a successful collegiate career playing for Clemson University. In 2021, he recorded four goals and four assists in 22 appearances to lead the team to their Division I NCAA national championship.

He now stands alongside Adam Armour, Brandt Bronico, and Christian Fuchs as Charlotte FC players who have also featured for the USL side.
