Chicago Fire FC acquired Mexican winger Jairo Torres as a Young Designated Player via transfer from Liga MX side Atlas F.C. As part of the transfer agreement, Torres joined the Fire on May 1 and his contract with the Club will run through 2025. Torres, 21, climbed the Academy ranks at Atlas before making his professional debut with the club on Nov. 19, 2016, at just 16-years-old. In the 2022 Liga MX Clausura season, Torres started all 15 matches in which he played. His goal in the 1-1 tie against UANL Tigreson Saturday, his final match before joining the Fire, was enough to secure Atlas one of the top three spots in the table heading into the Liga MX Clausura playoffs. In the 2021 Liga MX Apertura season, Torres started 20 of the 21 games in which he played, including all six games in the Liga MX playoffs, during which the team advanced past Monterrey and UNAM Pumas before coming from behind to defeat León in the two-leg final to capture its first Liga MX championship in 70 years.
