Contract extension for defender Kamal Miller


MONTREAL – CF Montréal announced on Monday a contract extension for Canadian international Kamal Miller for the next two seasons. The deal also includes an option year for 2024.

“We were really happy with Kamal’s acquisition last winter from day one, and he confirmed the good things we saw in him on the field, but also off the field as a good leader for the young players,” said CF Montréal sporting director Olivier Renard. “It was normal for us to want to extend his contract. We hope he will be with us for the years to come.”

“Since day one, I’ve felt welcomed and appreciated by CF Montréal. The club, my teammates and the fans have been so amazing. Even from so far away, I’ve felt the constant support from the fans,” said Kamal Miller. “I am excited to get back and play in our stadium. I’m looking forward to the future with this club. In the end, with all circumstances considered, it was an easy decision for myself and my family.”

He played the 2019 and 2020 seasons with Orlando City SC, playing 28 regular season games, including 23 starts, cumulating 2,155 minutes of play, plus two MLS playoff games, including one start, for a total of 121 minutes of play. Miller was selected 27th in the 2019 SuperDraft by Orlando City SC. Previously, he played 78 games with Syracuse university.
