Reed, 24, originally signed with Reign FC on Feb. 8 after playing with German side FCR Duisburg. She started in all 17 of her appearances for Seattle in the 2013 NWSL season, logging two assists in 1503 minutes.
At the conclusion of the 2013 season, Reed was loaned to Swedish club Kristianstads DFF for the remainder of the Damallsvenskan season, which ended in October.
“We are really happy that Elli has committed to the club. She was a valued member of our team last year, both on and off the field,” coach and general manager Laura Harvey said. “We expect great things from her during our upcoming season.”
Both assists from Reed last season resulted in game-winning goals – the first came July 11 against the Western New York Flash, when Christine Nairn put Reign FC up 3-2 in the 82nd minute. The Park City, Utah native’s second assist came just three days later when she set up Jessica McDonald’s goal to give Seattle a 2-1 lead over the Washington Spirit on July 14.
A graduate of the University of Portland, Reed was named first-team All-WCC and second-team Academic All-American following her senior year, when she led the Pilots to a 19-1-2 record.
