South Georgia Tormenta FC is proud to announce the signing of Austin Wehner. The 23-year-old winger signed his first professional club contract, joining Tormenta FC on a one-year contract and option for 2025, pending league and federation approval.

"I am very excited to be joining my first professional soccer team. It is truly a dream come true, and I'm immensely grateful for this opportunity that Tormenta FC is providing me. It's a testament to hard work and perseverance, and I'm excited to embrace the challenges ahead while living out my passion for the beautiful game. I can't wait to kick things off this season and am looking forward to having a very successful season with this talented squad. Vamos Tormenta!" Wehner said.

These are traits we can map and visualize contributing to goals," Head Coach Ian Cameron explained.
