Charles Nosike "Charlie" Rugg (born October 2, 1990) is an American soccer player currently playing for Indy Eleven on loan from LA Galaxy in Major League Soccer. Rugg has been described as "a big, physical forward with speed, strength, the ability to hold the ball and battle in the air."[1]



Los Angeles Galaxy selected Rugg in the first round (No. 19 overall) of the 2013 MLS SuperDraft. Rugg made his debut for Galaxy on April 27, 2013 against Real Salt Lake and also scored his first professional goal in the 13th minute.[2]

On March 22, 2014 Rugg was sent down to the LA Galaxy II, the reserve side of the Galaxy, and played in the sides first USL Pro match against the Orange County Blues. He started the match and scored the first goal in Galaxy II history in the 40th minute.[3]

Rugg was loaned to Indy Eleven for the rest of the NASL season on October 1, 2014. He made his debut on October 4, 2014 against the New York Cosmos and scored his first goal against San Antonio Scorpions on October 18, 2014.[4][5] His game-winning goal against San Antonio earned him Play of the Week honors.[6] Over the course of his loan, he started and played 90 minutes in all five games he was available for, with the team getting three wins and two draws in those matches.[7]

On 18 March 2015, Rugg rejoined Indy Eleven on a season-long loan.[8]
