Patrick da Silva made his Brøndby IF debut (in jersey number 35) at the age of eighteen. Patrick was in the starting line-up in the 0-2 home defeat against Randers FC on 3 March 2013. He retained his spot, despite the fact that he formally belonged to Brøndby IF’s U19 squad, for the remaining 13 games of the season in which Brøndby got clear of relegation and ended up as 9th in the Danish Superliga.
Patrick da Silva got his first call-up for the Danish national U19 team on 19 March 2013 by national U19-coach Thomas Frank. Patrick got his international debut in the away 1-1 draw against France U19 on Stade de Auch and he scored his first U19-international goal 4 June 2013 in the 5-0 win against the Czech Republic in the UEFA Elite Round.
Patrick da Silva got promoted to the first team 1 July 2013 and handed jersey number 23.
On June 25 Patrick signed a new tree-year contract extension until June 30, 2018 despite a season with limited appearances due to being head coach Thomas Frank’s second choice as left wingback after the Danish International U21 starlet Riza Durmisi.
Patrick da Silva started the season with a slot among the starting-11 in a staggering 9-0 home victory against the San Marino side A.C. Juvenes/Dogana in the Europa League qualification which he crowned with scoring his first European goal (14': 2-0).
After a mutual agreement, Silva and BIF chose to terminate the contract. This happened on 31 October 2016.
After a defeat against Lyngby Boldklub on 12 May 2017, Da Silva was spotted going out clubbing the same night. This violated the rules of FCN and several medias wrote, that he would be suspended. Meanwhile, nothing was confirmed. The next day, manager Kasper Hjulmand confirmed the episode and said, that Silva would be suspended for a unknown period. Da Silva wasn't in the squad for the next game against FC Midtjylland.
