Victor Pineda (born March 15, 1993 in Bolingbrook, Illinois) is an American soccer player who currently plays as a midfielder.



The first homegrown player in Chicago Fire history, Pineda signed with the first team in August 2010. That year the midfielder lead the Chicago Fire U-16 Academy with eight goals and helped his team win the U.S. Soccer Federation Development Academy National Championship (in which he scored the first penalty kick of the penalty kick shootout).[1] He was subsequently called-up to the United States U-18 national team[2] and scored twice during the international tournaments. On February 17, 2012 Pineda was selected to the national U-20 team as one of the two team leaders.[3]

Pineda made his MLS debut on March 23, 2014 in a match against New York Red Bulls.[4]

On 13 June 2014, Pineda moved to NASL team Indy Eleven on loan.[5]
