Konrad Warzycha (Polish pronunciation: [ˈkɔnrat vaˈʐɨxa]; born February 14, 1989 in Zabrze) is a Polish soccer player who is currently without a club.


College and amateur[edit]

Warzycha was born in Poland, and later lived in England and Hungary, before moving with his family to the United States in 1997.[1] He grew up in Dublin, Ohio, attended Jerome High School, and played for the Ohio Blast club team, before going on to play college soccer at Ohio State University. As a junior in 2009 Warzycha earned a spot on the All-Big Ten Second Team, while as a senior he started all 18 of his Buckeyes' games, scoring eight goals in his final year with the team, and was named to the All-Big Ten First Team.


On January 13, 2011, Warzycha was drafted in the third round by Sporting Kansas City in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft.[2] He signed with the club on March 3, 2011.[3] On May 29, 2012, Warzycha made his debut for the club in a 3-2 win over Orlando City in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.[4] On August 28, 2012 Warzycha was loaned to Carolina RailHawks for the remainder of the NASL season. On September 12, 2012 Warzycha was recalled by Sporting Kansas City from his loan.[5] Warzycha was released by Kansas City on November 19, 2012.[6]

Warzycha signed with the Columbus Crew on February 27, 2013.[7] On April 27, 2013 he came on, late in the game as a substitution and become the second father-son, coach-player tandem in MLS history. After his father was dismissed in September,[8] Konrad Warzycha's option was not picked up following the season.[9]


Warzycha is the son of former Polish international Robert Warzycha, formerly the head coach of Columbus Crew.
