Forge’s Jace Kotsopoulos returns to Guelph University
Forge’s exciting young attacker Jace Kotsopoulos announced on Friday his decision to return to Guelph University for his final semester of school, a mechanism available in his contract as per the CPL–U SPORTS Draft.
The 21-year-old took to Instagram to announce his decision, making him one of a handful of drafted CPL rookies who have opted to return to university, as their eligibility is preserved – as such, Kotsopoulos can return to play for the Guelph Gryphons.
Kotsopoulos joined Forge FC after being drafted third overall in the 2018 CPL-U SPORTS Draft, with the Burlington, Ontario native making his club debut on June 12 as a substitute against Cavalry FC in Canadian Championship action.
He made his league debut soon after, scoring a goal in a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Valour FC. Kotsopoulos then added a second goal against FC Edmonton in an eventual 2-1 loss to kick off the Fall campaign.
