Sacramento’s newest attacking threat has the numbers to back up why he’s the perfect fit for SRFC

Republic FC’s first new signing of the offseason – Petteri Pennanen – has been a playmaker across the Atlantic since 2007, when he made his first professional for his hometown club Kuopion Palloseura - KuPS.

He rose through the youth ranks at KuPS, eventually joining the senior club at age 16 to help  guide his side to promotion into the Finnish first tier, where the club still competes to this day. 

His career has led him to top flight competition in Indonesia, Poland and the Netherlands – but the majority of his service was in Finland for his hometown Kuopion Palloseura. Now that he’s set to join the the boys in Old Glory Red,  it’s time to take a look at the numbers ‘Pete’ has racked up over his decorated career.
