CHESTER, Pa. (December 21, 2022) – Philadelphia Union today selected forward Stefan Stojanovic with the 57th overall pick in the 2023 MLS SuperDraft on Wednesday evening.
Stojanovic, 21, spent the 2022 season with Philadelphia Union II during its MLS NEXT Pro inaugural campaign. The forward made 16 appearances (seven starts) for Head Coach Marlon LeBlanc where he grabbed a goal and two assists in just over 700 minutes of work. Stojanovic's lone goal was a memorable one with a stoppage-time winner via a world class volley lofted in by Nathan Harriel. Prior to joining Union II, he appeared in 29 matches (11 starts) in two years at Saint Louis University before transferring to Georgetown University in 2021, where he scored nine goals in 18 appearances (18 starts). Stojanovic was also part of a U.S. U-20 Men's National Team training camp in January 2020 at IMG Academy in Florida.
