Skipper since 2019, Sam Kerr is one of the most recognisable football players in the world and holds the all-time goal-scoring records for Australian international players and the National Women’s Soccer League (USA).

Kerr’s goal-scoring prowess has afforded her the claim as the only female football player to have won the Golden Boot in three different leagues and on three different continents. Her list of accolades extends to four nominations for FIFA World Player of the Year as well as a Ballon d’Or nomination, becoming the first female footballer to appear on the cover of FIFA, whilst also writing inspiring children’s books in her spare time.

Kerr signed for Chelsea in 2020 and has since gone on to achieve 100 appearances for the London-based club and scored 82 goals, helping the Blues' to four WSL titles, three Women's FA Cup trophies and two Conti Cup titles.

Off the field, Kerr’s high profile and dedication to football has earnt her the Young Australian of the Year gong in 2018 and was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in 2022.

Kerr was featured on the cover of the Ultimate edition of FIFA 23 alongside Kylian Mbappé, the first time a female player would appear on the global cover of the game franchise. The same year, the striker was named to the FIFA FIFPRO Women's World 11 for the very first time.

The accolades continue to pile up for the forward, becoming th first Australian female football player to be nominated for the Ballon d'Or Féminin, and finishing in the top three for the 2021 and 2022 season.
