by Andrew Ross

Lakeland, FL - One of the Tropics original stars will continue to play in Lakeland for the next three seasons.

Victor Parreiras, who has been with the Florida Tropics since their inception in 2016, has signed a new three year contract with the team. Per league and team policy, no terms of the deal will be released.

He led the Major Arena Soccer League team in points last season with 17 goals and 13 assists in his 19 games played.  In his three years with the team, he has 44 goals and 31 assists, second only in scoring to his linemate Ricardo Diegues.  He started his MASL career in Texas with two different teams, scoring 26 goals in 17 games with Oxford City and the Brownsville Barracudas.

He is currently playing with the Tropics SC in the United Premier Soccer League, one of the club's two outdoor teams

this summer. The Tropics SC play their home games at Lake Myrtle Sports Complex.

"We are committing to our tremendous fans and business partners to rebuild our roster this off-season to bring the best professional arena soccer we can bring to Lakeland, and there is no better place to start than one of our core players," Coach Clay Roberts said. "He is a fan favorite who works hard at both ends of the floor, exactly the type of player we want to have up and down our roster."

The Florida Tropics will start their fourth season in the MASL in late fall at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland. For more information, visit
