SMU women’s soccer signs Danish forward Cecilie Fløe Nielsen

DALLAS – SMU women’s soccer head coach Chris Petrucelli announced the signing of Cecilie Fløe Nielsen. Cecilie, who goes by Fløe, is set to join the Mustangs in the fall of 2021.

Fløe Nielsen is a forward from Erritsø, Denmark, whose career is highlighted by playing for the U 19 Danish National Team. She currently plays for KoldingQ, a women’s club team in Denmark’s Elitedivisionen league. Before joining KoldingQ in 2020, Fløe spent time playing for Odense Q and attended high school at Fredericia Gymnasium.

“We are extremely excited to add Fløe to what is already a very talented class,” Petrucelli said. “Fløe is a dynamic attacking player with outstanding athletic ability. She can take over a match with her power and pace. Her technical skills are superior as well and she plays a style of soccer that will fit well at SMU. She’s had great success in the highest league in Denmark. She’s featured on her National Team. She’s coming to us as an experienced and talented player with huge upside.”

Fløe’s parents are Annette and Peter and she has three sisters, Fie (20), Stine (23) and Line (31). Her favorite place that soccer has taken her is Spain and in her free time, she enjoys reading and hanging out with her friends. Fløe used to horseback ride and her favorite player is Heung-Min Son. She chose SMU because of the soccer program’s ambition, the quality of education and the beautiful campus. Her major is undecided, but she wants to be in the Cox School of Business.
