Louis Perez (born 11 June 1997) is a French footballer who plays as a midfielder for North Carolina FC in USL League One.



Perez spent time with various teams in France, including CO Vincennes, Paris Saint-Germain, AS Poissy and ESTAC Troyes, the latter of which he appeared for the club's second team in the CFA.[1][2]


In 2017, Perez moved to the United States to play college soccer at the University of Central Florida. In three seasons with the Golden Knights, Perez made 50 appearances, scoring 7 goals and tallying 16 assists. In 2019, his last full season for UCF before the COVID-19 pandemic saw the 2020 season cancelled, Perez was the team's second-leading scorer with four goals and 11 assists, which was one-off a school single-season record. Perez's 11 assists were fourth in the NCAA and led Perez to be named as second-team All-American Athletic Conference. In 2018, Perez was named the AAC Midfielder of the Year and a third-team All-American by the United Soccer Coaches, helping UCF to the AAC regular-season title.[3]


On 17 February 2021, Perez signed his first professional contract, joining USL Championship side Pittsburgh Riverhounds.[4][5] Perez made his professional debut on May 8, 2021, appearing as a 61st-minute substitute in a 3–0 loss to Tampa Bay Rowdies.[6]

On 3 February 2022, Perez made the move to USL League One side FC Tucson.[7]

Following Tucson's voluntary relegation to USL League Two, Perez signed with USL League One club North Carolina FC.[8]
