“I have been truly blessed for the past 16 years,” Reis said via a team news release. “I’ve been able to do something that I love – play soccer for a living. There have been many coaches who have influenced my development and helped get me to this point, and I have played with some fantastic players, many of whom are friends for life.

“I have played for two amazing organizations over the years. Both of those owners, the Kraft family and Mr. Anschutz, are deeply committed to ensuring soccer thrives in the United States. Because of their guidance, MLS has come a long way in the last two decades, and I am very proud to have played my whole career in this league and with these teams.”

Reis, 38, also played for the Los Angeles Galaxy from 1998 to 2002. He was named to the Major League Soccer all-star team four times. He appeared in 293 games and had a 110-98-79 record.

“I also want to make sure the fans know how much I’ll miss them, too. They’ve made this amazing ride more fun to be on through the years,” Reis said.
