Inter Miami CF Trades Ben Sweat to Austin FC
Inter Miami CF has traded defender Ben Sweat to Austin FC in exchange for $100,000 in General Allocation Money (GAM).
Sweat was the first overall pick in the 2019 MLS Expansion Draft for Inter Miami, joining the Club on Nov. 19, 2019. The 29-year-old left back went on to make 22 regular season appearances for the Club in 2020, including 20 starts, registering a total of 1,675 minutes played and two assists.
The defender featured across several milestone moments for the Club. He started in the team's debut match with a trip to face 2019 Supporters' Shield champions LAFC, featured in the Club's first win - a victory over Orlando City SC in the first home match at Inter Miami CF Stadium - and appeared as a substitute in the team's playoff match against Nashville SC.
Sweat will join Austin FC ahead of its expansion season in MLS.
Inter Miami CF would like to thank Sweat for his work on and off the field and wishes him luck in his future.
