Stephanie Elise Catley (born January 26, 1994 in Melbourne ) is an Australian football player who has been active for Arsenal Women FC since July 2020 . She has been playing for the Australian women's national football team since 2012 .



Catley began her career in 2009 in the inaugural season of the Australian W-League at Melbourne Victory , where she made 51 appearances by 2014 and led her team to the first championship as team captain in the 2013-14 season. For the 2014 season she moved to the NWSL for reigning champions Portland Thorns FC and returned to Melbourne in September 2014 on loan until the end of the year.

With the newly founded women's team of Melbourne City FC , she won the championship in the 2015/16 season without defeat. The championship title was also won in the following two seasons. In the 2018/19 season she only made seven appearances due to an Achilles tendon injury and the club did not reach the final for the first time after three finals in a row. In the Australian winter she played for Orlando Pride in 2016 and 2017 , in 2018 for Seattle Reign FC and in 2019 after their move for Reign FC in the NWSL, but has not yet won a title with them.

National team

Catley ran for the Australian youth national teams in the age groups U-17 and U-20. On June 24, 2012 she made her debut in a game against New Zealand in the senior team of Australia and scored her first international goal on November 22, 2012 against Hong Kong . At the 2014 Asian women's soccer championship , she was used in two group games as well as in the semi-finals and finals. The Australians lost their 2010 title with a 1-0 defeat against world champions Japan , but qualified for the 2015 World Cup by reaching the semi-finals .

At the 2015 World Cup, she was used in the five games and did not miss a minute. With a 0-1 defeat against defending champions Japan in the quarter-finals, the World Cup ended for the Australians, like the final of the Asian Cup.

They then got their revenge at the qualifying tournament for the 2016 Olympic Games , where they defeated the Japanese 3-1 and qualified for the Olympic Games, whereas the Japanese missed the Games. In Brazil , it was used in the group matches and in the quarter-finals against the hosts. The semi-finals were only missed due to a loss on penalties against the Brazilians. In this case, however, she was no longer on the pitch, as she was replaced after 20 minutes.

At the 2018 Asian women's football championship , she was used in the group matches against South Korea and Japan and in the final against Japan, none of which the Australians could win. With a win against Vietnam , however, the Australians had reached the semi-finals and thus qualified for the 2019 World Cup, for which they were nominated on May 14, 2019. It was used in the first game against Italy , which was lost 2-1 by a goal in the fifth minute of added time.
