In a club press release, sporting director Nick De Santis expressed his content in being able to bring back one of the Impact's more technically adept players.
“We are very happy that we were able to come to a new agreement with Justin,” said De Santis. “Last season, Justin showed some very good moments. He is one of the most technical and gifted players on our team. We look forward to our technical staff continuing to work with Justin to help him find more consistency in his game, while helping him reach his fullest potential.”
Mapp scored two goals and had five assists in 27 appearances with the Impact last season.
