Hometown Hero Cece Kizer signs new contract

The Kansas City Current have announced today forward Cece Kizer has signed a new contract with the club. Kizer is now tied to her hometown club through the 2024 season.

“We are very excited to sign Cece to this new contract,” said general manager Camille Levin Ashton. “Her positive attitude, perseverance and love of Kansas City are just a few reasons she has excelled with this team. She was a big part of this club’s success after coming over in June and we look forward to her helping to lead this team in the future.

The Overland Park, Kansas native is one of four players on the Current roster with Kansas City ties. She took Blue Valley Northwest High School to three straight 6A State Championship matches before beginning her collegiate career at Ole Miss. While there, she set records for career goals (48) and points (119).

Kizer was originally drafted into the NWSL by the Houston Dash who selected her with the 13th overall pick. In the 2021 Expansion Draft, Kizer was the fourth pick by Racing Louisville. She scored seven goals for Louisville across the 2021 Challenge Cup, regular season and 2022 Challenge Cup, including the club’s first ever goal April 10, 2021.

The Current traded for Kizer June 9. She was a pivotal piece to the team’s unbeaten run, starting in 14 of 15 matches on the season and setting a club-record with seven goals from the run of play.
