LAFC signs tri-national teen Nathan Ordaz to Homegrown deal

California native Nathan Ordaz, who's been called into camps by the USA, El Salvador and Mexico, has signed a Homegrown contract with LAFC through the 2025 MLS season with an option for 2026.

The 18-year-old joined LAFC's academy from LAFC SoCal Youth (formerly Real SoCal) in 2018 at the U-14 level and moved the U-15, U-17, and U-19 levels.

Ordaz, who hails from the San Fernando Valley region of the Los Angeles area, was called into to the U.S. U-20 national team training camp currently taking place in Carson, California, under Coach Mikey Varas.

Also eligible for Mexico and El Salvador, Ordaz attended El Salvador U-19 and senior national training camps in 2021, and a Mexico U-20 in March of this year. He played for El Salvador's U-19s at this month's Dallas Cup.

“Nathan has technique, intelligence, personality and speed,” said LAFC Director of Football Operations Marco Antonio Garcés. “He unites these characteristics that are difficult to produce and are sought after.”

Ordaz becomes LAFC's fourth Homegrown signing, following Tony Leone, Christian Torres and Erik Dueñas.
