Inter Miami CF announced today that it has agreed to loan Homegrown Player Edison Azcona to USL Championship side El Paso Locomotive for the remainder of the 2022 season. Inter Miami retains the right to recall Azcona at any point during the loan.

“We feel this is a good move for Edison’s development and are excited for him to take the challenge head on,” said Chief Soccer Officer and Sporting Director Chris Henderson. “Edison is a promising young player and we’re committed to doing what’s best for his long-term development.”

Azcona, 18, became the first Inter Miami CF Academy product to feature for the First Team when he appeared as a substitute against Nashville SC in an MLS regular season match in May 2021. The versatile winger and attacking midfielder has gone on to feature in five MLS matches, all as a substitute. 

In 2020, Azcona stood out in his first season at the professional level as an Academy registered player for Inter Miami CF II, earning a pair of end-of-season honors for his performance; the Dominican winger was named to the USL League One All-League Second Team, and was nominated as a finalist for the USL League One Young Player of the Year award.
