    CHICAGO - Former UIC men's soccer standout Paul Tracy has signed a professional contract with the Swedish-based club Ljungskile SK. Tracy, a native of Naperville, played in a combined 34 matches for the Flames during the 2010 and 2011 seasons, garnering Second-Team All-Horizon League accolades at the conclusion of his senior season.

    On Sunday, August 4, Tracy and Ljungskile SK will play against former UIC Soccer First-Team All-American Baggio Husidic, who currently stars for Hammarby, another Swedish club based in Stockholm.

    Under the tutelage of UIC head coach Sean Phillips, Tracy provided instant leadership to a young backline during his two-year career - he transferred to UIC from Bradley in 2008. Tracy served as a co-captain in 2011, and during the 2010 season, he scored a pair of goals and assisted on two other scores.

    Ljungskile SK is located in Ljungskile, a town within the Uddevalla Municipality. The club was formed in 1926 and currently plays in Superettan. In 1990, Ljungskile SK was playing in the Swedish Division 5 and eventually gained promotion to Division 1 until they reached Allsvenskan in 1997. The club plays its home matches at Skarsjovallen, an 8,000-seat facility with a natural grass surface in Ljungskile.

    Tracy graduated with a bachelor's degree in Marketing from UIC in May 2012.
