The Indomitable Club’s newest force up top comes with style, a high soccer IQ and a knack for both creating and finishing in the final third

Newly inked Republic FC forward Jerome Kiesewetter, acquired on loan this week from FC Tulsa, comes to the Indomitable Club with an attractive resume and a high-level skillset that makes him a force to be reckoned with in Mark Briggs’ attack. 

Kiesewetter brings a wealth of both club and country experience to Sacramento, having represented the United States in addition to spending time in Major League Soccer, the USL Championship and the Bundesliga.

Kiesewetter’s Bundesliga career led him across the Atlantic to a spot on the USYNT, logging minutes for the U18, U20 and U23 sides. His prowess at the youth level earned him two caps with the senior squad under then-head coach Jurgen Klinsmann before making a name for himself in the USL Championship. 

Now with the Republic FC, Kiesewetter has done well to log some impressive numbers over the course of his playing career. 


When Jerome Kiesewetter takes the pitch, he will be the first German-born player to appear for the Indomitable Club in franchise history. 



The striker has made two appearances each throughout his career in the German Bundesliga, Major League Soccer, and on the international stage. He logged 55 minutes in two matches for 1. Bundesliga side Stuggart in 2014-15, and appeared in two matches for MLS club Inter Miami FC last season. Kiesewetter has two caps for the USMNT team, both of which came in 2016 friendlies against Canada and Iceland under Klinsmann.



Kiesewetter scored four goals for the USYNT U23 side at the 2015 CONCACAF Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship to tie for the Golden Ball as the tournament’s top scorer, but earned the Golden Boot for overall points after adding two assists. His performance earned him the country’s only Best XI selection for the competition. 



The German-American forward notched 10 assists during the 2014-15 season for Stuggart II, to go with four scores across 33 appearances in Germany’s second-tier league.



Kiesewetter was an offensive force for El Paso Locomotive FC in 2019. He found the net 12 times for the Texan club, including a brace against Republic FC on May 18. His dozen scores led El Paso to the Western Conference final, where they fell to eventual champions Real Monarchs.



The newest member of the Boys in Old Glory Red has eclipsed the 2,000-minute plateau twice in his career- first in Germany with 2. Bundesliga squad Stuggart and again with the USL Championship’s El Paso Locomotive FC.
