College and Amateur
Oppong grew up in Scarborough, Ontario, attended Cardinal Newman Catholic Secondary School, and played two years of college soccer at the University of Cincinnati, before transferring to the University at Buffalo prior to his junior year. He was an All-MAC Second Team selection in 2008.
During his college years Oppong also played for the Toronto Lynx in the USL Premier Development League. He made his Lynx debut on June 15, 2007 in a 4-0 defeat to the Michigan Bucks, and in 2008 helped the Lynx reach the playoffs for the first time since the 2000 season.
Oppong was among the new additional signings made by North York Astros head coach Vladimir Klinovsky midway through the 2009 CSL season to strengthen his squad as it attempted to qualify for the playoffs, but left the team after making only two appearances. He later played briefly for the Edmonton Drillers in the Canadian Major Indoor Soccer League.
On April 8, 2010, Oppong signed with the Harrisburg City Islanders of the USL Second Division. He made his debut for Harrisburg on May 7, against the Charlotte Eagles coming on as a substitute for Kai Kasiguran. After Harrisburg failed to secure a postseason berth he signed with Portugal FC of the Canadian Soccer League for the remainder of the 2010 season. He helped Portugal finish fifth in the overall standings and thus secured a playoff berth. In the postseason he featured in the quarterfinal match against Milltown F.C., and in the semi-final match against the Brantford Galaxy.
Oppong signed with the new FC Edmonton side of the North American Soccer League on March 3, 2011. The club re-signed Oppong for the 2012 season on October 12, 2011.
After spending 2014 with Finnish side AC Oulu, Oppong returned to North America and signed with NASL side Atlanta Silverbacks on February 5, 2015. He made his debut for Atlanta on April 4 against Indy Eleven.
Oppong made his debut for the Canada U-20 men's national soccer team on December 6, 2005 in a game against Cameroon at the Francophone Games, and went on to appear in all three matches of their group stage.
Oppong's brother Victor was long-time member of several youth teams from Canadian Soccer Association and played for many teams in Germany including SV Waldhof Mannheim, SG Sonnenhof Großaspach, SV Sandhausen, 1. FC Saarbrücken and VfR Mannheim. Victor is currently an assistant coach for USL side Ottawa Fury FC.
