2020-2021 – SPORTING KC II (USL CHAMPIONSHIP)
In 2020, Čuić was loaned to Sporting KC II where he spent two seasons with the USL Championship club. He made 12 starts in 2020 and appeared in all 16 matches on the schedule. The midfielder netted his second goal as a pro against St. Louis FC on September 20, 364 days after his first professional goal in Croatia. Čuić also logged the first three assists of his career in 2020.
Čuić had career-highs in appearances (29), starts (25), and minutes (2,080) in 2021. His one goal of the season came on August 12 in the 4’ minute against Birmingham Legion FC.
In those two seasons with Sporting KC II, Čuić was able to get familiar with FC Tulsa a bit as he matched up with the Tulsan side once in 2020 and four more times in 2021. He started four out of those five matches.
2017-2019 – GNK DINAMO ZAGREB II (CROATIA)
Initially signed with the GNK Dinamo Zagreb Academy in 2015, Petar Čuić would be promoted to the club’s second-tier team in late 2017, making two appearances and one start in his debut season.
Over his next two seasons, Čuić saw his minutes increase on the pitch as his role became more pivotal for the Croatian side. He would go on to make 29 additional appearances between the 2018 and 2019 seasons, 21 of which Čuić made the Starting XI. He scored his first professional goal on September 21, 2019, in a 2-1 defeat to Medjimurje.
