About the Author

Andrew Howe grew up in Sydney where his first sporting passion was for the Cronulla Sharks rugby league team and his academic ability was for statistics and history.

 Andrew attended his first national soccer league game between APIA Leichhardt and Marconi as a 19 year old in 1988 and fell in love with the round ball code there and then.

 An inquisitive mind led to Andrew searching for more information about the history of soccer in Australia and, not satisfied with what he found, he set about developing his own record of the sport.

 A Bachelor of Economics graduate from Macquarie University, Andrew's sporting statistics career then developed alongside his professional career as a demographer with the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

​By the mid-1990s, Andrew's soccer stats and history were being used by media throughout Australia, and in 1999 he began his role with the game's governing body—now Football Federation Australia —as honorary statistician, a position he has held since then. Andrew's statistical record for Australian national teams, national leagues and the country's players has been treated as the official record throughout this time.

 Andrew wrote his first guide for the national soccer league in 2000, and has compiled every men's and women's national league official guide since then. His work is also used by Fox Sports, the Professional Footballers' Association, and most other major media outlets throughout the country.

 Not just a collector of statistics and history, Andrew presents his work in innovative ways and uses dynamic visualisations and maps as well. Andrew has maintained a media presence by producing a long-running radio show in his home town of Adelaide—writing columns in multiple outlets and throughout social media channels.
