St. Charles, MO – The St. Louis Ambush have signed forward Corey Adamson for the next three seasons, team Co-Owner Andrew Haines announced today. The popular Adamson returns to the Ambush following stints with the Milwaukee Wave and Cedar Rapids Rampage. The upcoming season will be Adamson’s fifth in professional indoor soccer.

His rookie season with the Las Vegas Legends (2012-13) was shortened to one game due to an injury. He came to open tryouts with the then-expansion Ambush in the summer of 2013 and earned a spot on inaugural season roster. Corey appeared in 30 games with St. Louis during the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons, tallying 15 goals and five assists. He had the distinction of scoring the first and last Ambush goals of the season at the Family Arena. Adamson was sent to the Milwaukee Wave in a February 1, 2015 trade. He finished the 2014-15 season in Milwaukee where he contributed three goals in four games played. Corey joined the expansion Rampage for the 2015-16 season, appearing in eight games and registering one assist. Adamson has also played outdoor soccer for the Atlanta Blackhawks, Panama City Beach Pirates and Houston Dutch Lions.

Adamson hails from Clearwater, Florida and spent his collegiate career (2006-10) playing for USC-Aiken. Adamson is a two-sport pro, having played as a kicker with the St. Louis Attack and River City Raiders arena football teams.

Corey has also embraced the St. Louis area, relocating here with his fiance Melissa, and making hundreds of appearances at schools, hospitals, youth soccer tournaments and other events. He said, “Saint Louis has been so good to me over the past few years. I’ve developed some incredible relationships and have met truly amazing people here. Words can’t describe how happy I am to play for this city again, and how excited I am to be back in black and teal. I can’t wait to get on the field with my teammates and Tony. It feels so good to be home!”

Haines said he’s thrilled to bring Adamson back to St. Louis. “Corey plays the game with a lot of heart and brings the franchise assets both on and off the turf. I know our fans will be happy to see him return and I’m glad circumstances worked out that we were able to add him to the squad for the next three seasons.”
