Creighton men’s soccer bolsters back line with international signing
OMAHA, Neb. – Creighton men’s soccer head coach Johnny Torres announced the addition of Miguel Ventura on Wednesday afternoon. A native of Ponta Delgada in the Azores region of Portugal, Ventura will join the Bluejay program in the fall of 2021.
The 5-foot 10-inch left back currently plays for Académica de Coimbra, based out of Coimbra, Portugal. He also played for Pauleta, São Roque and Sporting Clube de Portugal. Ventura helped his team earn a regional championship at the U16 level and district championships at the U13 and U14 levels.
“We are excited to welcome Miguel Ventura to the fold,” head coach Johnny Torres said. “He is an experienced winger that can get up and down the flank with poise and technical ability, while keeping a keen eye on the defensive side of the play. Miguel has the tools that will allow the continuity of our high academic and athletic standards at Creighton University.”
Creighton’s 2021 spring regular season is slated to begin on Feb. 20 at Marquette. The Bluejays’ home-opener is an exhibition match scheduled for Feb. 24 against two-time defending NAIA national champion Central Methodist.
