Bryan Pérez (born November 1, 1988 in San José) is a Costa Rican footballer currently playing for the Milwaukee Wave in the MISL.


Youth and college[edit]

As a child, Pérez was a member of Costa Rican powerhouse Saprissa's Futbol Academy, and at the age of 11 he was chosen to be a member of Saprissa traveling youth club. Pérez moved with his family to Miramar, Florida in the early 2000s; he attended Miami Killian High School, and went on to play four years of college soccer at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, ending his career there as the team's all time leader in goals (29), points (70), shots(160), and games played (78).[1]

During his college years, Pérez also played with Kansas City Brass in the USL Premier Development League.[2]


Pérez was signed by Miami FC of the USSF Division 2 Professional League in February 2010.[3] He made his professional debut on June 19, 2010 as a substitute in a 3-1 loss to the Austin Aztex,[4] but played just one more game for Miami before being released by the team mid-season.

Having been able to secure a professional contract with another team, Pérez signed to play for Des Moines Menace in the USL Premier Development League in 2011.


Although Perez has not yet been called up to any national team, he has expressed a preference to play for the Costa Rica national team, should the opportunity arise.[5] Pérez holds dual citizenship with Costa Rica and the United States.
