We’re pleased to announce the signing of our first Pittsburgh born player — Nick Kolarac — to our Men’s First Team that will compete in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) May-July 2019.

Kolarac most recently played with the Fort Pitt Regiment (NPSL) — serving as captain in the 2018 season where he also earned NPSL All East Conference XI Midfield selection.

“We are excited to have Nick bring veteran leadership to the team in its inaugural season,” says Coach Tom Campbell. “Through film footage and conversations, we know he will bring immediate value to the squad in both leadership and his style of play.”

Kolarac played collegiately at Saint Francis University (NCAA D-I), and with both IMG Academy Bradenton (USL2) and the Michigan Bucks (USL2) before entering the American Soccer League with the Philadelphia Fury. In 2015 he returned to Pittsburgh signing with the Riverhounds (USL).

He also has played with the St. Louis Ambush of the MASL.

“I want to be a part of building the game in Pittsburgh — which is why the Pittsburgh Hotspurs were a great draw for me,” said Kolarac. “Having grown up and learned the game in Pittsburgh, keeping my soccer career here is exactly where I want to be.

Campbell added, “From the first conversation with Nick, it was very apparent the passion and dedication he has to the sport and this community. And being a Pittsburgh grown player, well, he fully embodies the type of squad we’re putting together.”

The Pittsburgh Hotspurs first game is May 25th in Erie against the Commodores.
