CONFIRMED: Tony Halterman Signs Contract With Nordvarmlands FF
During a successful 10-day trial with Swedish club Nordvarmlands FF, Tony steered the club to two pre-season victories and was offered a contract to play for the team in the 2016 season. In doing so, Tony becomes SoccerViza’s first player to sign a contract in Sweden.

Tony Halterman completed his trial with Nordvarmlands FF and was signed by the club over the weekend following his second pre-season victory in goal.

Tony was identified on the SoccerViza Network by a member of the Nordvarmlands staff and invited to trial, where he exceeded expectations and earned his first European contract.

“It’s been a long time coming,” Tony told SoccerViza.

“It feels awesome to have signed with them [Nordvarmlands]. I have always wanted to play in Europe, and I’m glad to finally be getting this chance. It’s a fantastic opportunity for me to establish myself and get my name out there, while helping the club achieve its goal of promotion this season.”

Tony will be an integral part of a Nordvarmlands club that is trying to get back to the upper tiers of Swedish football after being relegated from Division 2 last season. The club’s offense did well enough to stay alive in normal conditions, scoring 46 goals in 26 games, but 7 points from the team’s final 10 games of the season was the nail in the coffin, as they slipped away from safety.

“I think this is a great move for Tony,” SoccerViza Player Relations Manager Christopher McCollum commented.

“To be given an opportunity to go into a club that is going through a rebuilding phase after relegation, and have the chance to make your mark among new faces and get promoted straight back up, that’s the journeyman’s favorite scenario. Tony has the talent to play at a good level, but has needed the opportunity to express himself in Europe to show what he can do. I’m glad that this match came along. Tony gets his opportunity, and Nordvarmlands gets a quality player who will fight, and earn results, for the team.”

Tony’s season begins on April 16 with the first league match of the year against IFK Sunne Fotboll, followed by a weekend home fixture against Eskilstuna Sodra FF.
