Rowe, 27, has 29 goals and 42 assists in 220 MLS regular season matches. Originally drafted third overall by the New England Revolution in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft, he played seven seasons at Gillette Stadium before an off-season trade landed him with Sporting Kansas City prior to the 2019 season. After a solid rookie season in 2012, he had a breakthrough in 2013, notching seven goals and eight assists in 33 matches in his second MLS campaign. In a four-year stretch from 2013-2016, he totaled 24 goals and 26 assists in 126 matches, playing 33 matches in three of the four seasons. The versatile midfielder lead New England to the playoffs in three straight seasons from 2013-2015, reaching the MLS Cup Final in 2014.
A native of Federal Way, Wash., Rowe played two years at UCLA before embarking on his professional career. Off the field, Rowe has been an active member of the community in New England and Kansas City, earning the Revolution’s Humanitarian of the Year award four years running from 2014-2017. Rowe’s primary philanthropic work came through the Jessie Rees Foundation – an organization that helps children with cancer – by hosting his own initiative, “Kelyn’s NEGU Crew” (Never, Ever Give Up) at every Revolution home match, giving each child a memorable experience as they continue to fight cancer.
