Stone Sports Management, LLC (Columbus, Ohio) – February 14, 2018


Stone Sports Management LLC (“SSM”) announces Toronto FC’s transfer and signing of former Jacksonville Armada Goalkeeper Caleb Patterson-Sewell to a 1-year deal with MLS options. The 30-year-old American-Australian makes his return to MLS with the 2017 MLS treble-winning side coached by Greg Vanney. Patterson-Sewell’s recent form over the last 18 months, keeping 17 cleans-sheets out of 38 games between the Armada and Portuguese side Farense, proved FourFourTwo’s prediction he would be one of seven NASL players to transfer to MLS for the 2018 season.


The 6’ 3” Patterson-Sewell joins Alex Bono and Clint Irwin as one of MLS’s most experienced goalkeeping corps and will be working with Toronto FC’s Goalkeeping Coach Jon Conway. With Toronto FC involved in the CONCACAF Champions League knock-out rounds that begin later this month, there will be no shortage of games between that competition, the MLS Regular Season and the Canadian Championship.


“I am delighted to be back in MLS and with Toronto FC’s first-class organization,” says Caleb Patterson-Sewell. “I paid close attention to the club’s MLS-record 2017 season, and I look forward to working with [Head Coach] Greg Vanney, [Goalkeeping Coach] Jon Conway and the rest of the coaching staff and teammates to contribute to achieving our goals for 2018 and beyond.”


2017 was Patterson-Sewell’s full season between the pipes in North America since the 2010 season with Miami FC. Patterson-Sewell rose to the occasion breaking the Armada’s clean-sheet record (10) and claimed NASL's third best GAA (1.11)The NASL honored his consistent play with 6 out of 32 Team of the Week Honors. 

Patterson-Sewell’s first MLS stint occurred in 2008 with the New York Red Bulls having signed there following his professoinal debut season with the Cleveland City Stars in 2009. He would feature in a friendly against FC Barcelona where he had a standout performance against some of the world’s best and was on the bench for the 2008 MLS Cup Final. Having played at every North American level, Patterson-Sewell made the jump abroad signing with Portuguese club Atletico Club de Portugal in summer 2011. Patterson-Sewell would emerge as a Liga Honra Goalkeeper of the Year Finalist having played every minute and led league with the best Goals Against Average. His strong player in Portugal gained him promotion to the Portuguese Superliga where he played with Vitoria Setubal (2012-13) and Gil Vicente (2013-15) before a brief return to North America with Rayo OKC. After leaving due to Rayo’s dire financial situation, Patterson-Sewell signed with Farense SC until signing two years with the Armada in February 2017.


“Caleb deserves this moment to return to MLS after his first full season in goal here in North America since moving abroad in 2011,” reflected SSM’s President and USSF Licensed Intermediary Justin B. Stone. “Caleb’s leadership, experience and consistency will complement the other Toronto FC goalkeepers and looking forward to him joining TFC’s quest to build upon its 2017 treble-winning side within MLS and CONCACAF.”


Patterson-Sewell is a Nashville, Tennessee native and his decade-plus professional career helped him established CPS Soccer Academy, one of the region’s top developmental academies. This year’s annual camp takes place June 18-21st with special guest professional players and coaches. Visit www.cpssocceradacdemy.com for more information.
