The New England Revolution have signed 18-year-old midfielder Jack Panayotou (Cambridge, Mass.) to a Homegrown Player contract through the 2026 MLS season with an additional one-year club option for 2027.
Panayotou becomes the 10th Homegrown Player signing to join the Revolution’s MLS roster after being named the 2022 UnitedHealthcare Revolution Academy Player of the Year.
He earned the Academy’s top individual honor after playing a pivotal role in the Under-19s’ run to the 2022 MLS NEXT Cup national championship. The 18-year-old scored a tournament-high six goals, including the game winner in the final last July 3. Panayotou capped off his final Revolution Academy season with a selection to the inaugural 2022 MLS NEXT All-Star Game, in which he recorded the game-winning assist in the 89th minute.
