Eric Avila signed the Tampa Bay Rowdies on February 26, 2016.

Avila, 28, primarily plays as an attacking midfielder in the wide areas of the field, though he can also play centrally. He brings nine years of Major League Soccer experience to the Rowdies, having played nearly 10,000 minutes in MLS.

His professional career began when FC Dallas selected him as a Generation Adidas member in the second round of the 2008 MLS SuperDraft. After four seasons in Dallas, including helping the club reach the MLS Cup final in 2010, Avila was traded to Toronto FC in a deal that sent former Rowdies forward Maicon Santos in the other direction.

After two seasons in Toronto, Avila was acquired by Chivas USA, where he played until the franchise disbanded in 2014. Avila then signed with Santos Laguna last year and joined Orlando City on a season-long loan.

Born in San Diego, Avila represented the United States at the Under-17 and Under-20 levels.
