Ghanaian Ebenezer Ackon has been selected by Chicago Fire in the MLS SuperDraft.
The talented young defender joins the MLS side after emerging as the fifth pick for the Club and 53rd pick overall in this year’s SuperDraft.
Ackon becomes the third Ghanaian to be picked in the MLS SuperDraft after Roy Boateng and Anderson Asiedu joined New York Red Bulls and Atlanta United respectively.
A former student of Mfantsipim School, the player moved to the State to further his education with Browling Green University having initially earned admission into the University of Cape Coast.
He now gets the opportunity to sign his first professional contract with Chicago Fire and becomes only the second Ghanaian to join the Club after David Accam who moved to fellow MLS side Philadelphia Union.
