ONTARIO, CALIFORNIA - The Ontario Fury, Driven by Mark Christopher Auto Center, announced they have signed free agent midfielder Jeff Hughes for the 2018-19 Major Arena Soccer League Season. Per team and league policies, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Hughes has spent the last 10 years in arena soccer, playing with the Cincinnati Kings, Syracuse Silver Knights, Missouri Comets and recently with the San Diego Sockers.

“Jeff is a natural leader and has tons of experience that he brings to the table,” said Fury President Bernie Lilavois. “In addition to being a tremendous competitor, he has taken on many roles over the years including being a player/coach which will really help our younger players on and off the field.”
