Christopher McVey joined Inter Miami ahead of the 2022 MLS season to bolster the team’s defensive options.

Prior to signing for Inter Miami, McVey spent the entirety of his career in Sweden, turning out for several categories of IF Elfsborg’s youth ranks since joining the club’s academy in 2009 at the age of 12, including making five UEFA Youth League appearances for the team’s U-19 side, before going on to make his debut for the first team in a Allsvenskan, the Swedish top tier, match in October 2017. The Sparsör, Sweden native of American descent made a total of 42 appearances across all competitions for Elfsborg between 2017 and 2021, gaining valuable experience by playing five UEFA Conference League qualifying matches in the 2021-2022 campaign, netting once and dishing out an assist in the process.
