The league's 2022 Golden Boot and Golden Ball winner returns to Chattanooga Football Club for the 2023 campaign.
Markus Naglestad scored 20 total goals and 7 assists in the 2022 season to lead the league in scoring.
"It feels amazing to continue to play for this great club and city," said Naglestad. "I’m really thankful for the continued trust shown to me by the club and I can’t wait to keep representing CFC both on and off the field in 2023."
When asked about his role off the field, Naglestad added "I love it! We have such important roles as ambassadors for the club and I can’t wait to continue my involvement on multiple arenas."
In addition to 2022, Naglestad has won the Golden Boot three other times as a pro.
