Cityzens swoop to sign World Cup winner
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 11 Aug 2020
 
FA WSL news - Cityzens swoop to sign World Cup winner - 11 Aug 2020 - Women's Football NewsManchester City Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of American international and World Cup winner Sam Mewis.
 
The 27-year-old - who was a key figure in the USWNT's 2019 World Cup triumph - joins City from National Women's Soccer League outfit North Carolina Courage.
 
Originating from a footballing family in Massachusetts - with her sister Kristie also playing professionally at Houston Dash - Mewis started out with UCLA Bruins where she won the National Championship as well as National Player of the Year honours. In 2016 meanwhile, she won the NWSL Championship with Western New York Flash and at the start of 2017, linked up with North Carolina Courage and secured a further two league titles and three NWSL Shields in three years. She was also named in the NWSL's Best XI in her first year at Sahlen's Stadium.
 
On the international scene, Mewis figured for the United States at numerous youth levels, winning the CONCACAF U20 Women's Championship and FIFA U20 Women's World Cup in 2012, before moving into the senior set up in 2014. Quickly becoming a key figure for the USWNT, the midfielder has helped the team to success in the SheBelieves Cup tournament (2016 and 2020), Tournament of Nations (2018), CONCACAF Women's Championship (2018) and most recently, the FIFA Women's World Cup last summer.
 
Ahead of the upcoming 2020-21 Barclays FA Women's Super League season, Mewis will link up with Manchester City for her first foray into the English game.
 
Speaking about her move, she said: "I'm so happy to have everything sorted. The opportunity came along at a really great time - as soon as I heard about the chance of coming to play for Manchester City, I was immediately interested.
 
"The Club is one of the best in the world and I've heard such good things about the women's side as a whole and the incredible facilities. I've followed the men's team too for a long time.
 
"This is a really cool, unique and amazing opportunity in my career and I'm so excited to come and see Manchester as a city, be a part of this incredible Club and hopefully help the team achieve their goals."
 
Head Coach Gareth Taylor said: "We're thrilled to welcome Sam to Manchester City and we're thoroughly looking forward to working with her.
 
"As well as being a World Cup winner, she will bring a wealth of experience and quality to our squad and I'm really pleased that she feels she can fulfil her ambitions with us.
 
"She will also be a fantastic addition to the Barclays FA Women's Super League as a whole and we can't wait to see her pull on a blue shirt for the first time."
 
Head of Women's Football, Gavin Makel, added: "Bringing Sam to the Club is a huge coup for us.
 
"She is a proven winner, having experienced incredible success with the USWNT last summer and of course at North Carolina Courage over the last few years in the NWSL.
 
"Having seen Sam play up close whilst in the US, she is a highly technical and extremely athletic midfield player who will help the team push on in what is a new era for the club."
