Player Bio

Born on April 28, 2000, in Cowra, New South Wales, Australia, Ellie Carpenter is an exceptional young talent in Australian women’s football.


Carpenter made her debut in the W-League at the age of 15, becoming the youngest player to participate in the competition, starting twelve games in her debut season for Western Sydney Wanderers. Carpenter also made her debut for the Matildas the same year: the country’s first international player – male or female – to be born in the 21st century.

A two-time Olympian, Carpenter impresses with her marauding runs from the right-back position, solid defensive work, and pin-point delivery when going forward.

After recovering from an ACL injury that kept her out for over eight months, Carpenter has returned to club and international football this year, looking to recover some of her best form that saw her lighting up the biggest stadiums in Europe. This will be Carpenter’s second FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Ellie was part of the French female team, OL Féminin, which won the UEFA Champions League of 2021/2022. OL Féminin proceeded to win the Coupe de France Féminine, a female tournament in France.

Currently, in April 2024, Ellie was seen at the training grounds in preparation for the World Cup.
