Vancouver Whitecaps FC[edit]

Carducci signed his first professional contract with Major League Soccer's Vancouver Whitecaps FC on March 4, 2014.[1] He made his debut on May 7, 2014 in a Canadian Championship fixture against Toronto FC, which Vancouver lost 2–1.[2] After three seasons with the Whitecaps, two of which were on loan to their reserve club Whitecaps FC 2, the Whitecaps announced that Carducci would not return for the 2017 season.[3]

Rio Grande Valley FC Toros[edit]

Carducci signed with USL side Rio Grande Valley FC Toros in March 2017.[4]

Calgary Foothills FC[edit]

In February 2018, Carducci would turn down multiple offers from USL clubs to sign with Premier Development League club Calgary Foothills FC, serving as an goalkeeper coach in addition to playing duties.[5][6]

International[edit]

Carducci has represented Canada at various youth levels. He was on the Canadian team that went to the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup.[7] In May 2014, he was named to the Canadian U-20 team that would participate in the Milk Cup later that summer.[8] He played one game at the tournament, with his Vancouver Whitecaps compatriot Nolan Wirth playing the other two. Carducci would later participate again with the U20s in November, where he played two games against England and Russia in a 2–2 draw and a 2–1 victory, respectively.[citation needed]

In May 2016, Carducci was called to Canada's U23 national team for a pair of friendlies against Guyana and Grenada.[9] Carducci started the second match against Grenada, posting the clean sheet [10]
