Oakland Roots have signed Midfielder Wal Fall ahead of the 2021 USL Championship season. The Veteran Midfielder Fall most recently featured for St. Louis FC in the USL Championship. Prior to St. Louis, Fall featured in the USL for Ottawa Fury alongside current Roots assistant coach Nana Attakora and two seasons with the Rochester Rhinos. 

“We are thrilled to welcome Wal to the Roots Family,” said Technical Director Jordan Ferrell. “Wal has a proven track record in this league as a dominant midfielder at the center of perennial playoff teams. His personality and drive to win will be important in building the culture we want here in Oakland.” 

Before arriving in the USL, Fall played mostly in the German and Austrian lower leagues including stops in Wiesbaden, Nuremberg, Mannheim and Lustenau, before the Rhinos brought him to Rochester. 

“I’m excited to start a new journey with such an exciting and fan community,” said Fall. “We’re ready to win and make you proud. I’ll see you guys soon in Oakland.”
