Toronto FC announced today that the club has signed midfielder Mark Delgado to a new long-term deal. As per club policy, exact terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Mark has been such a big part of TFC’s success. We are all very happy that he will be remaining with the club as he is an important part of our group,” said Toronto FC General Manager Ali Curtis. “He has played in some of our club’s biggest matches over the years and gained a tremendous amount of experience. He’s young, takes great care of himself, and works incredibly hard, which were critical factors in ensuring he remained with TFC for the long-term.”
Delgado is currently in his sixth season with Toronto FC and ninth in MLS. Delgado appeared in both matches earlier this season for the Reds. He has made 170 appearances with 14 goals and 19 assists across all competitions for TFC. Delgado was part of Toronto FC’s 2017 Treble winning team (MLS Cup, Supporters’ Shield, Canadian Championship). In addition, Delgado has also been part of two Canadian Championship winning teams (2016, 2018) and three Eastern Conference Championships (2016, 2017, 2019). He currently sits fourth on Toronto FC’s all-time appearance list behind Jonathan Osorio, Justin Morrow and Michael Bradley. Delgado was originally acquired by Toronto FC on November 19, 2014 in the 2014 MLS Dispersal Draft following the contraction of Chivas USA.
Delgado has earned six caps for the United States Men’s National Team during his career. His most recent cap came in a 1-0 friendly loss to Italy on November 20, 2018.
