Career[edit]

Brovsky was drafted first in the second round (19th overall) in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft by Vancouver Whitecaps FC.[2] He signed with Vancouver on March 15, 2011,[3] and made his professional debut on April 10, 2011 in a game against Houston Dynamo.

Brovsky was left exposed by Vancouver in the 2011 MLS Expansion Draft and was selected by expansion side Montreal Impact.[4]

On June 12, 2014 New York City FC, who do not begin play until the 2015 MLS season, traded a second-round 2016 MLS SuperDraft pick to Montreal for Brovsky, making him their second signing.[5][6] Four weeks later, the New York club sent him on loan to Strømsgodset in Norway, an affiliate of NYCFC's sister club Manchester City, in order to keep him match fit for the start of the 2015 Major League Soccer season.[7] On 26 July, he got his Tippeligaen debut, when he came on as a substitute in the 76th minute in the match against Sandnes Ulf.[8]
