The Empire Strykers announced the signing of MSL player Adrien Perez to a one‐year deal. Adrien Perez was a standout in the MASL in 2018. He was offered a contract and played with LAFC for two seasons, later being traded to DC United. After two seasons with DC United, Perez is excited to make his return to the MASL.

“Adrien is an attacking threat that can score goals, dominate the attacking side of the ball, and has great vision with the ball. He is a great team player and will really add to the attacking production of the team," said Jimmy Nordberg, Empire Strykers head coach.

Perez is an Ontario, Calif. native who is excited to return home to Southern California to help the newly rebranded Empire Strykers win a championship in the MASL. “With great experience, locker room presence, and on field ability, Adrien is the type of player that we are looking to bring into this talented group and move us forward in our quest to win a championship. We are extremely eager to get Adrien in the Stryker uniform and in front of our fans," said Nordberg.
