St. Charles, Missouri (December 3, 2021) – The St. Louis Ambush have announced the signing of Kyle Swanner. Per league and team policies, no details of the contract have been disclosed.

Swanner started playing soccer at the age of three and soccer is in his blood, literally. He is the son of St. Louis indoor soccer legend and current Ambush assistant coach Jamie Swanner.

Kyle played club soccer for NORCO, Swanner United and the SLSG Academy, where he played on a national championship team at age 14 and also competed in England and Holland. He chose to forego high school soccer in favor of continuing his development at the club level.

Swanner’s collegiate career included SIUE in Edwardsville, Illinois, Lewis and Clark Community College in Godfrey, Illinois (where he was team captain) and Quincy University in Quincy, Illinois.  He has primarily played midfield and defender thus far.

Ambush co-owner and General Manager Jeff Locker said, “We’re pleased to welcome the next generation of the Swanner soccer legacy and are excited to watch Kyle develop as a member of the Ambush.”

Kyle said, “I’m excited to play for the Ambush. It’s a great opportunity to push myself and I can’t wait to get started and make a contribution to bring the Ambush back to the top because the fans deserve our very best.”

The Ambush will be on the road this weekend when they travel to Texas to clash with the Dallas Sidekicks Saturday, December 4 at 7:00 p.m. CST. The next Ambush home game is slated for December 19, when the Milwaukee Wave come to town for a 4:05 p.m. CST contest at The Family Arena.
