2013: After spending the 2012 season with Minnesota Stars FC (now Minnesota United FC), Nuñez returned to the Fort Lauderdale Strikers ahead of the 2013 NASL Fall season.
He made his return to the team in the first match of the Fall season, coming on as a substitute in the 2-1 defeat to The New York Cosmos on August 3. Nuñez scored his first goal of the season in the next match, a 3-1 defeat to Minnesota United FC on August 10. He started the next match, a 2-1 victory against San Antonio Scorpions on August 17, opening the scoring in just the second minute of the match.
2011: The Fort Lauderdale Strikers re-signed Martin Nuñez ahead of the 2011 NASL season. He began the campaign as a starting forward, but lost his place due to the good form of strike partnership between Abe Thompson and Brian Shriver. Nuñez was often used as a substitute to provide an injection of energy into the game. In stoppage time of the August 8th encounter with the Carolina RailHawks, Nuñez scored with a last-gasp volley to steal a win for the Strikers. It was just one of many important goals he scored in 2011 for the Strikers.
Martin Nuñez played 29 games in all competitions with the Strikers, starting 13 of them. He scored a total of 5 goals, and contributed 3 assists.
2010: Nuñez signed with Miami FC (now the Fort Lauderdale Strikers) towards the end of the 2010 USSF-D2 season. He was limited to the role of a bit-part player, often coming on towards the end of matches. Nuñez played nine games in 2010, and tallied a goal and an assist.
Professional: Miami FC selected Nuñez in the second round (22nd overall) of the 2007 USL College Player Draft, but he decided against signing with the Blues. He instead signed with the Carolina RailHawks on March 15, 2008, after declining a contract with the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer. Nuñez had an exceptional debut season with the RailHawks, scoring five goals from 28 games as an attacking midfield position. He was nominated for Rookie of the Year, but lost out to Osvaldo Alonso, now with the Seattle Sounders FC of MLS.
Nuñez joined the Puerto Rico Islanders for the 2009 season. He couldn’t replicate the good form he showed in Carolina, and was released from the club after playing just 14 games.
After two seasons in South Florida, Nuñez was traded to Minnesota Stars FC in exchange for defender Jack Stewart. He played 25 games for the Stars in their run to the NASL Championship Series, scoring 5 goals.
College: Martin attended Georgia Perimeter College in 2006 where he played one year of college soccer. In his sole season with the Jaguars he scored 30 goals and provided 17 assists, leading the team to an impressive 23-1-1 record. After an outstanding season, Nuñez opted to turn professional.
Personal: Nuñez was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, but grew up in South Florida after moving to Miami at the age of nine.
