The Orlando Pride added another attacking option to their 2023 roster.

Canadian international Amanda Allen signed a three-year through the 2025 season, the club announced on Monday.

“Amanda is a player that we see as one of the future stars of both the NWSL and of the Canadian national team, and we’re so happy to be able to bring her to Orlando. She’s a dynamic, attack-minded player who is going to bring even more competition to our roster,” said Orlando Pride VP of Soccer Operations and GM Haley Carter said in a statement. “Amanda is one of the most promising and exciting players in our game, and she is going to flourish in her development as both a player and person here with the Pride.” 

Allen, 18, was part of the Canadian team that won the bronze medal in the 2022 Concacaf Women’s U-17 champion in the Dominican Republic where she also scored two goals in the group stage.

That performance followed with a first-time call-up to the senior women’s national team where she debuted against Brazil on November 22 at only 17 years old.

“The week that I came in to train, I really felt like I was a part of the team and I felt like going pro was the next step for me and Orlando made me feel welcome, really pushed my boundaries. I just loved it here, I loved the environment,” Allen said of her decision to join the Pride. “The team culture was huge for me. Just the way everybody acted so professionally and really welcomed me in and had passion for the game. It felt like I was part of the family already, so I can’t wait to step on the field with them.”
