NEW YORK – NJ/NY Gotham FC Wednesday announced that forward Katie Stengel has been acquired from Liverpool on a transfer.
Stengel had joined the National Women’s Soccer League club on July 5. She was transferred for an undisclosed fee and signed with Gotham FC through the 2025 season.
“When I came to Gotham FC, I wanted to give everything I had to this temporary opportunity,” Stengel said in a statement. “I feel incredibly fortunate to continue at a club that is building the foundation of something special through professionalism and an exciting style of play.”
Four days after joining the club, Stengel became an immediate impact player, scoring the game-winning goal in her first game with Gotham FC, when she found the back of the net in the 56th minute against the Portland Thorns. Across all competitions, Stengel has scored three goals and appeared in eight games.
“Katie is a dynamic attacking player for us, who can create scoring chances for herself and her teammates due to her quality and work ethic,” Gotham FC head coach Juan Carlos Amorós said in a statement. “She has impressed us from day one and has adapted really well to our style of play. We are excited that she will remain with the club and help Gotham FC to keep growing”
Stengel also scored a UKG NWSL Challenge Cup game-winner against the eventual champions, the North Carolina Courage on Aug. 5. She also tallied a regular season goal against the San Diego Wave on Aug. 19.
“Katie Stengel has provided another key element to our attack, and we are pleased that she will continue to be a strong contributor to our talented roster of players,” general manager and head of soccer operations Yael Averbuch West said in a statement.
During her NWSL career, Stengel has appeared in 104 games, with 60 starts, 5,562 minutes, 15 goals, and five assists.
Gotham FC will host the Washington Spirit at Red Bull Arena on Saturday.
