Gotham FC has announced that the United States (U.S.) Women’s National Team forward and NWSL star Margaret Purce has signed a new multi-year contract with the club through 2024 that includes an option for the 2025 NWSL season.

“I’m excited to be a part of the vision to build Gotham into one of the greatest clubs in the world,” said Purce on the club website.

On the international stage, Purce appeared on the USWNT roster that won the SheBelieves Cup in February, and she also earned minutes during two international friendlies in New Zealand in January.

For the USWNT, she has scored four goals and notched three assists in 23 matches since her debut in 2019.


Since joining Gotham FC via a trade with the Portland Thorns in 2020, Purce has emerged as a star and invaluable leader.

Her breakout NWSL season came in 2021, when she led Gotham FC in scoring with nine goals, finished second in the NWSL’s Golden Boot race, was a finalist for NWSL Most Valuable Player (MVP), and was named to the NWSL Best XI.

Last season, she scored three goals and contributed three assists in 16 matches.
