Encyclopedia of Matildas Beyond the World Cup 2023


Authors: Andrew Howe​ and Greg Werner

The companion volume to the Encyclopedia of Socceroos Centenary Edition (2022),  this is an updated 120,000-word Encyclopedia, with players and data to the end of the 2023 World Cup co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand in July/August 2023. 

It is the perfect end-of-year present for a young player, and the only way to find out more about the history and heroes of women's football in Australia.

The Encyclopedia of Matildas Beyond the World Cup is fully updated and revised from the most recent edition published prior to the World Cup, and includes data and information from the 2023 tournament, as well as of the 'first Matildas' who played in the AFC Ladies Asian Cup in 1975. 

The Encyclopedia of Matildas is a ‘must have guide for any fan of the game and is a wonderful addition to the library of every Matildas’ supporter and fan of women's football.

It gives the number of every player who has been capped, the number of games played, goals scored, match listing and a concise biography of each player, as well as historical data on the Women's Super League and the A-League Women's competitions. 

Statistician Andrew Howe has meticulously gathered and maintained records of every match played by every woman selected for the Matildas, complemented by the work of Greg Werner from The Grassroots Football Project. 

The updated Encyclopedia will be available in December 2023. It will be available in good bookstores; we have only limited copies available for direct purchase.
