2020: NYCFC acquired Nicolás Acevedo using Allocation Money from Liverpool FC.
2019: Nicolás Acevedo was awarded the "Joven Talento del 2019" by the Uruguayan Football Association which honors the best U-21 player in the country's domestic league. The 20-year-old played 31 games as Liverpool finished 5th in the aggregate table last season. He helped Liverpool qualify for the CONMEBOL Copa Sudamericana twice and also scored a penalty in the shootout as his club lifted the “Torneo Intermedio” for the first time in 2019.
2018: Acevedo came through Liverpool’s academy in his native Montevideo and debuted for his boyhood club in 2018. He became captain in 2019 at 20 years old.
His performances earned him a call-up to the Uruguayan U-20 national team where he helped lead his country to the Round of 16 in 2019’s FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland. Acevedo also featured extensively with the U-23s as they finished third in the CONMEBOL Olympic qualifiers behind Argentina and Brazil earlier this year.
