FULL SQUAD: Introducing the first ever A-League All Stars Women team to take on Arsenal

The 2024 A-League All Stars Women head coach Joe Montemurro has officially selected his 19-player squad ahead of their tantalising showdown with Women’s Super League (WSL) giants Arsenal as part of Global Football Week Melbourne.

Headlined by the inclusion of current and legendary CommBank Matildas Cortnee Vine, Michelle Heyman, Tameka Yallop, Alex Chidiac, Lydia Williams, Elise Kellond-Knight and Kyah Simon, the squad will see a star-studded side of the best local talent take the field at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne on Friday, May 24.


The inaugural A-League Women All Stars side also includes a number of Australian and International stars that have excelled across the Liberty A-League Women this season including 2023-24 Julie Dolan Medallist Sophie Harding of Western Sydney Wanderers, Championship-winning Sydney FC goalkeeper Jada Whyman, Danika Matos, Alana Cerne, Rhianna Pollicina and Grace Maher, along with New Zealand Football Ferns Hannah Wilkinson, Michaela Foster and Rebekah Stott.

A-League All Stars Women Head Coach Joe Montemurro said: “The quality across the Liberty A-League Women is undeniable. The league has been a proven pathway for Matildas for many years, and more and more we’re seeing current Matildas and other internationals feature across the league. 

“Within this squad we will have 11 internationals and it’s a squad that has a great mix of experience, quality and flair that I think will excite the fans, show the best of the league and most of all give Arsenal Women FC a real challenge.

“I can’t wait to work with this squad and the incredible coaches and see the Australian football fans create an incredible atmosphere at Marvel Stadium for what will be an amazing showcase of world class football.”


A-Leagues Commissioner Nick Garcia said: “What an incredible A-League All Stars Women squad – the very first in our history. It’s packed with quality from across our league and I can’t wait for this match in Melbourne to cap off an historic 12 months for women’s football in Australia and New Zealand. 

“With the likes of Cortnee Vine, Michelle Heyman, Lydia Williams and Alex Chidiac amongst a squad of some of the very best the Liberty A-League Women has to offer, we look forward to seeing them continue to inspire the next generation of female footballers and fans as they take on a giant of world football.”
