Club career


Chung grew up in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia and began playing soccer with Coquitlam Metro Ford SC at the age of six.[1] He later joined the Vancouver Whitecaps Residency Program in September 2011, making several appearances with their U-16 and U-18 teams.

Whitecaps FC 2

Whitecaps FC 2 signed Chung during the 2015 USL season and made his debut on September 13, 2015 against Orange County Blues.[2] He would make one more substitute appearance that year.

In the 2016 season, Chung established a starting spot at right-back and made the USL Team of the Week after making a crucial assist on a Kyle Greig goal in a 3-2 victory against Tulsa Roughnecks.[3] Chung, along with fellow Whitecaps Academy products Matthew Baldisimo and Thomas Gardner were praised during the club's USL playoff run in the 2016 USL season[4]

In December 2016, Whitecaps FC 2 announced that Chung would return to the club for the 2017 season.[5] He would spend three seasons with Whitecaps FC 2 before the club ceased operations after the 2017 season.[6] Rather than sign a USL deal with the Whitecaps new affiliate, Fresno FC, Chung would elect to pursue opportunities outside of Canada.[7]

1. FC Kaiserslautern II

On 5 February 2018, Chung signed with 1. FC Kaiserslautern II in Oberliga Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar.[8]

Pacific FC

On November 29, 2018 Chung was unveiled as the first signing for Pacific FC ahead of their inaugural season in the Canadian Premier League.[9]

International career

He scored in a 3-1 victory against Haiti and started every game of the tournament at left-back.[10] In 2015, he was named the Canada U17 Male Player of the Year for his performances during the tournament.[11]

On 17 March 2016, he was called up to the Canada U-20 squad in their two games against England and scored a goal to open the scoring in a 2-1 victory.[12] In August 2016, he was called up to the U-20 team for a pair of friendlies against Costa Rica[13] In February 2017, Chung was named to Canada's roster for the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship[14]
