NJ/NY Gotham FC has appointed Juan Carlos Amorós as the newest head coach. He joins on a three-year contract, after serving as the Houston Dash interim manager.

He replaces Scott Parkinson, who departed during the 2022 NWSL season amid the team’s 12-game losing streak.

"I’m proud to have this opportunity to work with the players and staff on building Gotham FC into the club this community and our incredible fans deserve,” said Amorós.

"The players will know they have a coaching staff who teaches and listens, and we will always work together to create an exciting brand of football for our fans. I cannot wait to get started and show our fans what Gotham FC will be, and I’m determined to lead this club to become a global destination in the football world.”

Amoros recently led the Dash to fourth place on the table, and the team’s first-ever NWSL playoff appearance. He also served as a head coach of Real Betis Femeninas from 2021-2022, where he inspired the team to a club-record unbeaten streak in Spain’s top division, and Tottenham Hotspur FC Women in 2019.

“Juan Carlos is an experienced and ambitious coach who is highly respected by players for his tactical knowledge and leadership,” said Gotham FC GM and Head of Soccer Operations Yael Averbuch West. “He shares a strong belief in our vision for Gotham FC, and we are very excited to bring him to NJ/NY.”

Gotham needed the boost after a turbulent 2022 campaign, ending in last place on the table with just 13 points in 22 games and a record of 1W-17L-4D.
