The Chicago Fire signed defender/midfielder Mauricio Pineda to a new contract through the 2026 season.

The deal announced Wednesday includes a team option for 2027.

Pineda, 25, has been with the Fire since signing as a homegrown player in January 2020.

The Windy City native has five goals and four assists in 90 career MLS matches (78 starts).

“Mauricio is part of a core group of young players from Chicago that have demonstrated time and again what it means to represent the Club and the city with pride,” Fire sporting director Georg Heitz said. “It’s the second time we have offered Mauri a new contract because we want to make sure that players who come up in our system are acknowledged, valued and compensated in a way that matches their value and contribution to the Club.

“Mauri’s impact on the field and in the locker room makes him a very important part of this organization and we’re very pleased to extend his future with the Club for several more years.”

Pineda has started four of his 11 matches so far this season.
