KANSAS CITY (September 15, 2021) – The Kansas City Comets announced today that free agent defender, James Togbah has signed with the club for three seasons. Per team and league policies, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Togbah, from Monrovia, Liberia, began his MASL career with the Comets in 2017, appearing in 12 games. His breakout year came the following season (2018-19) when he appeared in 23 games for the Comets, scoring 18 goals to go along with 8 assists for 26 points, and was second in the league that year with 8 power play goals. On loan from Utica FC last season, Togbah appeared in 5 regular season games and 5 playoff games for the Comets.

“They say that your feet will lead you to many places, but your heart will lead you home,” Togbah said. “I’m glad to be back where it all began. I’m here to help this organization and team achieve our goal. A Ron Newman trophy for the fans is the mentality; nothing less than that.”

“James is a very important part of our back line and someone I believe can help us win a championship,” said Comets Head Coach, Leo Gibson. “We are glad to have him locked up for the next three seasons.”
