CAREER

2018: Alex Ring continued to be the lynchpin in the midfield for New York City FC. The Finnish #8 started 29 matches, tallying two goals. “The Ringleader” as the fans call him was selected as a Coach’s pick for the 2018 MLS All-Star Game at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, where he took on Italian Serie A giants, Juventus FC. 

2017: The Finnish international was a force to be reckoned with in his inaugural MLS season, providing a formidable defensive presence to NYCFC’s midfield. Ring started 29 matches, complementing the likes of Moralez and Herrera, while adding four assists. He was named Newcomer of the Year after an excellent first campaign in New York.

2013: Following two years in the Helsinki first-team, a year-long loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach convinced FC Kaiserslautern to take Ring to Germany on a full-time basis in 2013 and he’s been there since, making more than 70 league appearances.

2011: Ring made his debut for Finland in June 2011 against Sweden before cementing himself as a regular in the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign.

2010: He made his senior debut at Klubi-04 before signing a full professional contract at the age of 19 back at Helsinki in 2010.

Youth: Alexander spent a substantial period of his childhood in Germany and developed as a player in the youth academies at VFL Lannesdorf and Bayer Leverkusen, as well as Anderlecht in Belgium and HJK Helsinki back in Finland.
