Joao joined the Chattanooga Football Club first in 2018, playing in all four preseason friendlies.
Costa played for the Charlotte Eagles in 2017 where the PDL side not only knocked CFC out in the first round of the US Open Cup, but his club won the PDL 2017 National Championship. His claim to fame was to be featured on Sportcenter's top plays, where he nabbed the #1 spot. Costa's beautiful scissor-kick goal evened the score for the Charlotte Eagles in the 26th minute of the championship game. The Eagles would go onto win the 2017 PDL Championship 2-1 against the Thunder Bay Chill.
Joao plays for Truett McConnell University.
