Nashville SC sign forward Woobens Pacius

NASHVILLE, TN – Nashville SC officially announced the signing of foward Woobens Pacius on Thursday.

Pacius, 22, was linked to Nashville in mid-December. He spent the last two and a half seasons with Forge FC in the Canadian Premier League. During that time, he scored 29 goals in 78 league appearances, leading Forge to two Canadian Premier League championships in 2022 and 2023, and a regular season championship in 2021.

“Woobens is a center forward who has already demonstrated the ability to finish scoring chances. He fits the profile we look for in an attacking player, and we are excited to see him take his next steps in his career here in Nashville,” said Nashville SC General Manager Mike Jacobs in the club’s press release.

Nashville currently have no available international roster spots available. Forster Ajago is already set to spend most of the season on loan with Huntsville City FC in MLS NEXT Pro, and Pacius seems destined to join him, at least until Nashville either acquire more international spots, or a player like Jacob Shaffelburg receives his green card in the summer.
