CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Charlotte Independence today announced the return of Amin Ibrahim who joins under his second USL Academy contract with the Jacks, pending league and federation approval. Ibrahim was first rostered with the Jacks in 2022. He was called up after a positive season with the club’s USL League Two team.
Ibrahim appeared in three games for the club’s USL League Two team last summer and still looks for his first professional minutes. Native to Eritrea, Ibrahim is a Charlotte homegrown talent who previously played with the Charlotte Independence Soccer Club’s U18 and U19 Academy teams.
Ibrahim will graduate from East Mecklenburg High School in June 2023 and maintain his college eligibility on his USL Academy contract.
“I am really excited to sign with Independence again!” Ibrahim said. “This season I’m hoping to make an impact within the squad and do my best for the club. I also want to be an example for kids in the academy to show them with hard work and belief you can achieve whatever goals you have set for yourself.”
