The 29 year old striker most recently played for German side Union Berlin in the 2nd division of the German Bundesliga, scoring 14 goals in 64 appearances.
Nemec has represented his national team 14 times, scoring 2 goals including a crucial goal in Euro 2016 qualifying this past November and will be added to NYCFC's roster for the 2015 season pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and P1 Visa.
New York City FC Sporting Director, Claudio Reyna said:
“Adam is a different type of striker than we have on the roster so far which gives us a different dimension up front and options on how our forward line can play.”
“It’s important to have players with a range of strengths and attributes, he’s a strong and powerful athlete and will add a real goal scoring threat to our team. We’re delighted to add Adam to an already strong group of strikers”
New York City FC Head Coach Jason Kreis added:
“We’re pleased to be getting a European International player that immediately strengthens the squad and adds further goal scoring threat to our team.”
Speaking to NYCFC.com, Adam Nemec said:
“Joining New York City FC is a fantastic opportunity for me. I hope to make an immediate impact and help the team get off to a great start as we begin our historic inaugural season.
“I know that being part of an ambitious club like New York City FC will give me the chance to show what I am capable of and maintain my place on the Slovakian National Team as we look to qualify for the Euro 2016 Finals.”
