Chicago Red Stars Sign Forward Ally Cook

The Chicago Red Stars have signed forward Ally Cook to a one-year contract with a one-year option, the club announced today. Cook joined the Red Stars as a non-rostered invitee at the beginning of preseason training camp.  

“I am truly honored and excited to join the Chicago Red Stars, taking my soccer journey to the next level,” said Cook. “I am grateful for the unwavering support of my incredible family, friends and the talents God blessed me with. I am excited for this new chapter with the Red Stars and ready to give it my all!” 

“Ally came into preseason training with the club undeterred by not being drafted, and proved she belongs at this level,” said Red Stars general manager, Richard Feuz. “We’re excited to see what Ally can do in the NWSL after an impressive collegiate career.” 

Cook joins the club from UCLA where the forward played in 44 matches, starting in 34, over two seasons with the Bruins. The southern California native scored 14 goals and made four assists for UCLA, earning her PAC-12 Third Team honors her first season and PAC-12 First Team Honors her second season with the Bruins. Cook finished her last season at UCLA ranked second on the team in goals scored and fifth in the PAC-12 with nine goals. After scoring two goals, including a game-winner against Colorado, Cook was named College Soccer News Team of the Week and the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week.  

Prior to becoming a Bruin, Cook played for the University of Oregon where the forward played in 54 matches and started in 52. Across three seasons, Cook scored 17 goals and notched six assists. Cook led the Ducks with eight goals and 20 points in her junior season at Oregon, making her the seventh Duck in program history to have a 20-point season. Cook helped Oregon secure their first back-to-back winning seasons in 15 years after scoring against Oregon State.  

The Chicago Red Stars travel to Sandy, Utah to take on the Utah Royals March 16 for the start of the 2024 NWSL Season. The team then returns to Chicago to take on Seattle Reign FC in the club’s home opener March 23 at SeatGeek Stadium. Tickets are now available at chicagoredstars.com/tickets.
