Born: October 27, 1998
Birthplace: Edison, New Jersey
Previous Club: Indy Eleven (USL Championship)
The two-time USL Championship title winner and 2021 MLS wingback joins FC Tulsa after being acquired from Indy Eleven via a player-for-player trade on July 5, 2022.
2022 – INDY ELEVEN (USL-C)
After finishing the 2021 campaign with Real Salt Lake, Noah Powder signed with USL Championship-side Indy Eleven in 2022. The versatile wingback made 12 appearances for Indy with nine starts, scoring once against Orange County SC on April 24 and logging one assist back on May 22 against his former club New York Red Bulls II. He also made one Open Cup appearance, a 90 minute performance against St. Louis City SC 2.
2021 – REAL SALT LAKE (MLS)
After 2+ terrific seasons with its USL Championship affiliate, Real Salt Lake called Powder up to the MLS roster and he would make his MLS debut on May 16, 2021 against Nashville SC as an 83′ minute substitution. In total, Powder appeared for Real Salt Lake seven times with two starts, logging 279 minutes in the United States top-flight division.
2019-2021 – REAL MONARCHS SLC (USL-C)
Powder stayed in the USL Championship’s Western Conference in 2019 by signing with Real Monarchs after one season with Orange County. He would win his second USL Championship title in 2019 after Real Monarchs finished fourth in the West but was unbeatable in the postseason. Powder set a career-high in appearances with 30 in the regular season, then added four more during the club’s title run in November. With three goals, one of which came in the USL Championship Final, and two assists, Powder was just as valuable for the 2019 champs as an attacker as he was a defender.
In the shortened 2020 season, Powder would make 10 appearances for Monarchs and score once while registering a single season career-high four assists.
Powder would only make seven appearances in 2021 with one goal scored before being promoted to Real Monarchs’ MLS parent club, Real Salt Lake.
2018 – ORANGE COUNTY SC (USL-C)
The Trinidadian and Tobagonian moved out west and signed with Orange County SC ahead of the 2018 season. He made 21 appearances for Orange County with 16 starts as the club steamrolled the Western Conference all season long, finishing first in the West and winning three playoff matches before losing to Phoenix Rising FC in the Conference Finals. Powder appeared in one of the club’s playoff matches and made an Open Cup appearance against FC Golden State Force. The left-back scored three goals for Orange County, the highest regular season single-season tally of his career, and came up with two more assists.
2016-2017 – NEW YORK RED BULLS II (USL-C)
Powder kicked off his career by signing with New York Red Bulls Academy in 2016 and trained with the senior team before making his first professional appearance with the club’s USL Championship side. He made his debut for New York Red Bulls II as a 17-year-old and would make 20 appearances for the club in 2016, including two playoff appearances, and notched his first two pro goals. Powder and Red Bulls II concluded the 2016 campaign as the USL Championship’s top record holders and would go on to be crowned the USL Championship champs with a 5-1 thrashing over Swope Park Rangers in the match for the league title.
Powder would ink his first professional contract with Red Bulls II in 2017 and make 10 appearances for the club, scoring one goal and coming up with one assist.
Noah Powder’s father was born in Tobago, making Powder eligible to represent Trinidad and Tobago at the international level despite being born in the United States. Powder has capped for the “Soca Warriors” 12 times in his career between World Cup Qualifying, the 2021 Gold Cup, Friendlies, and CONCACAF Nations League B play. Most recently, Powder started three of Trinidad and Tobago’s four Nations League matches in the June 2022 window, and the “Socca Warriors” won all three. He previously made five appearances for the U-17 side and eight more for the U-20 side before getting the call to the senior squad.
