The midfielder started 20 matches in 22 appearances with Racing Louisville, playing 1,711 minutes during her opening campaign. Olofsson joined the NWSL team in 2021 after a successful club showing in Sweden.
“I feel like I grew a lot last year personally and as a football player by developing things I wasn’t as good at,” Olofsson said in a statement. “With that being said, it took almost a whole year for me to adjust to things. That’s another reason why I wanted to stay and give it more time.
“I feel very honored that the club wants me here. I think that’s always a good thing as a player. I really believe in what the club is doing and working toward. I really enjoy being a part of this organization and working with everyone.”
Racing Louisville fell to the Chicago Red Stars in the team’s NWSL season opener and will continue their season next Sunday against OL Reign.
