LAFC today announced that the Club has signed 18-year-old defender Mamadou Fall off of MLS Waivers to a two-year deal with options through 2024. Fall will occupy an international spot on the Club’s roster pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) and P1 Visa.
The Senegalese native joins the Black and Gold from the Soccer Institute of Montverde Academy in Orlando, FL and was a teammate of 2020 LAFC signee Mohamed Traore.
