Patrick Otte (born October 22, 1991 in Netherlands) is an American soccer player who currently plays for Ventura County Fusion in the USL Premier Development League.



Otte attended IMG Academy for 2 years before joining the academy of storied English side Middlesbrough for 3 years, then joined Professional team Fort Lauderdale Strikers.


Otte signed his first professional contract in 2011 when he signed with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers of the North American Soccer League.[1] He made his professional debut on April 9, in a game against FC Edmonton,[2] and scored his first professional goal on May 11 in a 4-2 loss to the Carolina RailHawks.[3] After a promising start to the season, Otte injured his ACL in June and was ruled out for the duration of the season. In December 2011, the Strikers announced that Otte's option had been picked up and he would be returning for a second season with the club.[4]

On April 14, 2012 in a match against the Minnesota Stars, Otte made his first competitive appearance for the Strikers in nearly a year, coming off of the bench for Leopoldo Morales in the 73rd minute.[5]

On February 5, 2013, Otte played for the Leeds United development squad v Wigan Athletic as part of a trial period with the Yorkshire club.[6]


Otte's last name is often mispronounced. The correct pronunciation is "otter," like the animal.[7]
