Farias, a native of Santiago, Chile has appeared in over 150 indoor games, scoring over 100 goals during his career that has spanned parts of eight seasons.
"We are very excited to bring him on board. He has been one of the most prolific goal scorers in indoor history" said Lancers Head Coach Billy Andracki. "He has great vision of the game and the experience that he brings is something that can help get us to the playoffs and win a championship."
After he was taken in the fifteenth round by Major League Soccer’s San Jose Clash in 1996, Farias began his career with the Continental Indoor Soccer League’s (CISL) San Diego Sockers where he earned Rookie of the Year honors. Following the folding of the Sockers, Farias joined the Harrisburg Heat of the National Professional Indoor Soccer League (NPSL).
The 35-year old began his outdoor career in 1998 after signing with the San Diego Flash of the USISL. In 1999 Farias re-joined the Clash, appearing in two matches before being released. "Chile" re-joined the Flash for the remainder of the 1999, scoring fifteen goals in 23 games and earning First Team All-Star honors. His outdoor career came to an end when he decided to focus on the indoor game following the 2001 season with the El Paso Patriots (USL A-League).
In 2001 he signed with the World Indoor Soccer League’s (WISL) San Diego Sockers once again, earning all-star honors in 2001 and 2002. Farias was traded to the Baltimore Blast in 2003 and helped lead his team to the league title during the 2003-04 season, earning a First team All-Star nod. In March, 2005 he was traded to the St. Louis Steamers, where he helped lead the Steamers to the MISL Championship match, this time being named a second team all-star.
After a stint with the Detroit Ignition in 2006 and the Chicago Storm in 2007, Farias led Monterray, Mexico La Raza to the 2009 MISL Championship and was named MVP of the championship game. In 2011 he joined the Wichita Wings where he tallied 24 points in ten games before being released.
"As a spectator of the game, he is somebody that I have felt could not only change a game with his creativity on the field but also has the charisma off of it" said Andracki.
Farias was released by the Wichita Wings on December 29th. He led the team with 24 points.
