The 2018 season will be Callum Irving’s second with Fury FC. In 2017 Irving set a record for playing every minute of every game for the club. He played 36 matches that translated into 3,240 minutes and ended up with seven clean sheets and made 78 saves in all.   

In recognition of his efforts, the 24-year-old was awarded the Fury Fans’ Player of the Year and also shared the Newcomer of the Year award with Sergio Manesio.

The Vancouver native joined Ottawa from Rio Grande Valley FC where he recorded eight shutouts in 14 appearances, allowing only nine goals during the 2016 season. 

The 6-foot-1 goalkeeper played four years at the University of Kentucky in NCAA Division 1. He was a two-year team captain, two-time Conference Player of the Year (Conference USA), two-time NSCAA All-American and two-time NSCAA All-American Scholar.

Irving is a product of the Vancouver Whitecaps FC Academy (2007-12), where his success there translated into opportunities in the Canadian National Team system with the U-18 and U-20 sides. In January 2016, he received his first call-up with Canada’s Men’s National Team for an International Friendly match against the United States and earned his first cap for Canada on January 22, 2017, in an International Friendly against Bermuda where Canada won 4-2.

Fun Fact: When he writes his autobiography, its title will be “Callum Irving: A Man and His Hands”
