It’s been several months since we reported that Major League Soccer was beckoning for Woobens Pacius, with the Forge striker even penning a farewell to his former club in December.

Today, Nashville SC has finally confirmed the acquisition of the two-time CPL champion on a two-year deal with club options for 2026 and 2027.

Pacius had spent three seasons with Forge, amassing an incredible 32 goals in 93 appearances for Hamilton, Ontario-based club. All three seasons saw Pacius reach league finals (with two wins) along with reaching the Canadian Championship Final, too.

“Woobens is a center-forward who has already demonstrated the ability to finish scoring chances,” says Nashville GM Mike Jacobs. “He fits the profile we look for in an attacking player, and we are excited to see him take his next steps in his career here in Nashville.”

He won’t be the only Canadian in the lineup, with Nashville being home to former TFC duo Lukas MacNaughton and Jacob Shaffelburg.

It was three years ago that Pacius arrived to Hamilton as an unassuming midseason addition from the CF Montreal Academy in, but he quickly rose to prominence in Canada’s top flight.

Pacius tallied six goals after arriving that August, with his follow-up campaign seeing him crack double digits on the scoring chart while also tallying a career-first hat trick during a run of form that saw him net seven goals in a run of six matches.

The phenomenal form that saw him earn a U-21 Best Canadian Player of the Year nomination continued last year, with a ten-goal league campaign highlighted by a second career hat trick and a strong run of form near the end of the season before a foot injury sidelined him for playoffs.

It had long been reported that Woobens had turned heads in both Major League Soccer and Europe, with today’s announcement coming months after whispers of a move to Music City had first been uttered.
