Tyler Wolff Heads to Belgium

1 minute, 4 seconds Read

Having recently helped the the Americans win their third straight CONCACAF U-20 Championship and qualify for the Olympics to be held in Paris in 2024, it was announced yesterday that Tyler Wolff will be spending a season on loan with Belgian second division team, SK Beveren.

The son of former US National team player and current Austin FC head coach, Josh Wolff, the 19-year-old will leave behind his parent club Atlanta United and try to achieve what Americans Joe Efford and Jacob Montes were unable to do last season, which was to get the Flemish team back into the Belgian Pro League.

Wolff, who scored in the CONCACAF U-20 Championship where the USA crushed the Dominican Republic 6-0, should quickly find his way onto the field with his new team as they did little to impress down the home stretch last season, finishing a disappointing third and missing out on promotion.

The youngster may be the lone American in D2 in Belgium but he has joined the exodus of Yank talent coming over to Belgium to make a name for themselves.

He becomes the ninth, that includes seven playing in the top flight and one in D3. Yanks Abroad will keep tabs on this wunderkid and all the other American talent when the 2022-23 seasons get underway.
