FFA Podcast | In conversation with ... Chloe Logarzo

At 21 years old, Chloe Logarzo walked away from football and never thought she would play again.  

In our second episode, Chloe Logarzo joins us from Bristol in England after joining the FA Women's Super League club earlier this year.   

The 25-year-old opens up about her football journey.

By the time she was 19 years old, Logarzo had won a Westfield W-League championship, captained the Westfield Young Matildas and made her senior Westfield Matildas debut.

By 21 years old, Logarzo made the decision to quit the game. It has been a long road back, one that required self reflection and a new appreciation for the sport that is now her life.
