Esports | Chris Holly Departs NYCFC 


New York City FC can today confirm that Esports player Chris Holly has departed the club.

Holly was the club’s first-ever Esports signing after joining the Club in April 2017. The Haitian-born New Yorker has been a fantastic representative for NYCFC and enjoyed his first major success in 2019 when he lifted the first-ever eChampions League trophy in Madrid, Spain.

“I’m still in shock. This is my first ever trophy, I've been close before but what a trophy to win," he said at the time. “It’s a crazy feeling, to be honest. In Manchester, when I was playing didn’t expect much but now I’m the champion and I got to bring my dad.”

He has since followed that up with an impressive showing in 2021, collecting both the eMLS League Series One and Two trophies en route to lifting eMLS Cup in March.

The Club would like to put on record its gratitude for Holly’s hard work and achievements and wish him well in his future endeavors.
