Facchineri has CPL experience having made five appearances with Atletico Ottawa in 2020. He has also played for the Windsor FC this past summer earning League 1 Ontario defender of the year honours. He also captained Canada's U-17 team in 2019 and scored three goals with the Lancers last season.

“He’s a very good player who is very calm and composed on the ball and has a bit of a bite about him." Daryl Fordyce told Ed Tait, a writer for Valour FC. "He’s a player we think can come into our environment and really progress. First, he has to earn a U Sports contract with us, and as long as he works hard there’s no reason for him not to have, at minimum, a good CPL career.”

The Valour look forward to seeing Facchineri at training camp in February.
