Miami, FL (January 21, 2016) – Miami FC has revealed the addition of two more players to its 2016 roster. Former SC Wiener Neustadt midfielder Robert Baggio Kcira and Arizona United forward Aaron Dennis will be joining the fast-growing squad for its debut season.

“These players are going through some of the most exciting moments in their career,” Alessandro Nesta, Miami FC head coach, said. “They have so much opportunity ahead of them and I’m happy to see that they’ve chosen to move forward and continue growing with Miami FC.”

Kcira, 22, is a New York born midfielder who has played across the United States and Europe. Kcira started out playing for Clarkstown FC’s youth squad and still holds multiple records for scoring and assists. He was then selected to play for the NY State Olympic Development Program (ODP). While playing for ODP, Kcira was invited to play for the U.S. Regional 1 team and then soon selected for the U.S. National Pool.  From there, he joined the Red Bulls Academy team where he played in Barcelona, Texas, and other major tournaments around the globe.

During his most recent stint with SC Wiener Neustadt, Kcira helped the club win their division, leading the team in both goals and assists, and eventually being named to the Starting 11 of the league.

Aaron Dennis started laying the foundation to his professional career with his college soccer team, the Villanova Wildcats. Dennis started out strong in 2011 and played a pivotal role in the Wildcats’ first post-season win by scoring the match-winning goal. In the following years, he became a regular starter for the squad and made 17 appearances in 2012, 18 in 2013, and 16 in 2014. Dennis delivered some notable performances during his undergraduate years and was known for netting big winning goals.   

Last fall, the striker signed his first professional contract with USL’s Arizona United SC. He went on to play in six matches and made one goal for the team against the Whitecaps FC II.

Player announcements will continue to be released as the Miami FC gears up for the 2016 NASL season.
