Born in Balneário Camboriú, Brazil, in 1997 Moojen played for Coritiba Foot Ball Club’s youth team. He was briefly with International FC in 2001 before signing with Avaí Futebol Clube, playing with them from 2001 to 2004.[2] Moojen attended Lincoln Memorial University where he was a two-time Gulf South Conference Player of the Year and a 2005 NCAA Division II third team All American.[3] He transferred to Clemson University where he played the 2006 NCAA Division I season.[4] In 2004, he played for the Cocoa Expos in the fourth division Premier Development League.

In 2006, Moojen played for the Augusta FireBall, sharing the goal scoring lead with John Cunliffe.[5] He was also the 2006 PDL MVP.

Professional[edit]

On January 25, 2007, the Montreal Impact of the USL First Division drafted Moojen. He signed with the Impact on March 1, 2007 and played fourteen games for the Impact before suffering from a season-ending injury.[6] On April 21, 2008, he transferred from the Impact to the Minnesota Thunder in USL-1.[7] Moojen was released by Thunder in February 2009, during the off-season.[8]

On August 28, 2007, he signed with the New Jersey Ironmen of the Major Indoor Soccer League after the Ironmen selected him in the second round (18th overall) in the MISL College Draft. He was the 2007-2008 MISL Rookie of the Year.[9] The MISL collapsed at the end of the season and Moojen and his team mates moved to the newly created Xtreme Soccer League. Moojen, slowed by a toe injury played only seven games, scoring four goals, for the Ironmen before being traded to the Chicago Storm for Randi Patterson on January 31, 2009.[10]

He then moved to Poland, where he played in the colors of GKP Gorzów Wielkopolski. In the following year he went to play in the first division in Thailand and Oman. In 2011–12 he played with the Wichita Wings in the MISL. In the summer of 2012 he played in the first professional league in Quebec, the Première Ligue de soccer du Québec, for the FC L'Assomption where he was the league's leading scorer ("Golden Boot") and third best player ("Bronze Ball"). In the winter of 2012–13 he played his second season for the Wichita Wings in the Major Indoor Soccer League where he was the team's captain and leading scorer with 27 goals in 24 games. In 2013 he played again for the FC L'Assomption where he was the team's captain and league's leading scorer for the second consecutive year. In late 2013, Frederico Moojen signed a contract with the Baltimore Blast in the MISL and played with them for one season before the league dissolved.

He played outdoor for the FC L'Assomption for his third consecutive season in the PLSQ. In late September 2014, Moojen signed a new indoor contract with the Dallas Sidekicks of the Major Arena Soccer League, scoring 41 goals in 20 games for the Sidekicks.[11] Moojen was part of the Canadian National Arena soccer team that played in the Indoor Soccer World Cup in March 2015 scoring 7 goals in 3 games for Canada.

In 2015, he signed with Montreal club Mont-Royal Outremont and was the Première Ligue de soccer du Québec top scorer for the fifth consecutive year. During the 2015/2016 winter he played for the St. Louis Ambush in the Major Arena Soccer League where he was named assistant coach/player scoring 10 goals in 12 games played.
