San Diego FC announced today the signing of two new players, defensive midfielder Jeppe Tverskov and forward Marcus Ingvartsen from Danish Superliga and Right to Dream member Club FC Nordsjaelland. Ingvartsen signed a three-year contract through 2027 with a Club option through 2029, while Tverskov signed a two-year contract through 2026. The signings provide San Diego FC with veteran leadership in both the offensive and defensive thirds, and they will join San Diego native Duran Ferree as the second and third player signings in Club history.  

“I’ve been part of the Right to Dream playing style and part of the philosophy of this group from a very young age, developing through the years as a person and as a player,” said Marcus Ingvartsen. “Being able to bring some of those ideas and way of playing to San Diego FC is something that I look forward to. I look very much forward to being part of a completely new club and I have the confidence in joining because of the organization and people involved in it. Being able to create history from day one in this amazing city is something that will be magical.”  

Ingvartsen, 28, began his career at FC Nordsjaelland scoring 30 goals in 74 appearances for the Danish club. He led the Danish Superliga in scoring during the 2016-17 season before transferring to Belgium Pro League club Genk and later to German Bundesliga clubs Union Berlin and Mainz 05. He rejoined FC Nordsjaelland in 2023 where he made an immediate impact scoring six goals in eight UEFA Europa League matches, while adding another six goals in 16 Superliga contests. Ingvartsen made his senior team debut for Denmark in March 2021 scoring in a World Cup qualifier against Moldova. He is also the all-time leading goalscorer for Denmark’s U21 national team, notching 17 goals in 28 matches. 

“First of all, I’m very excited to join San Diego FC,” said Jeppe Tverskov. “The possibility of starting a new team is very rare and to be one of the first players joining the Club is exciting. From what I can see there is already a great fan base and we hope to compete at a good level from the start. It’s going to be very unique and exciting.” 

Previously, Tverskov, 30, had spent his entire playing career in Denmark. He made his Superliga debut in 2014 with Randers FC. In 2016 Tverskov signed with Odense Boldklub and appeared 210 times for the club over seven seasons before transferring to FC Nordsjaelland in 2023. During that stretch he appeared in 14 UEFA Europa League matches. 

“Marcus [Ingvartsen] and Jeppe [Tverskov] will provide experience and a key understanding to the Right to Dream style of play and culture that we will look to build from here at San Diego FC,” said Tom Penn, CEO, San Diego FC. “They have both played over 250 professional games across a number of leagues and competitions and will be bringing their diverse leadership to the team as we prepare for our inaugural season.”  

As San Diego FC gears up for its inaugural MLS season in 2025, the addition of Ingvartsen and Tvserkov further underscores the Club’s partnership with Right to Dream, a global soccer community of world-class academies, clubs and partners. San Diego FC’s affiliation with Right to Dream, not only offers an innovative approach to identifying and nurturing talent, but an exciting, fast-paced style of play.
