Alanna's Story

Alanna Kennedy is one of Australia’s most recognised professional female football players.  But more than that, she is a grounded, skilled professional with a low-key charisma and charm that belies her commitment to her craft and her tenacity and drive for success.

Growing up in Suburban NSW, in a close-knit family of 6, it is here where Alanna’s journey originated, and where the cultivation of her athletic abilities and her strong desire to succeed, commenced.  Playing Cricket and AFL, and representing her state in Athletics, it was however her passion for the round-ball game that eventually won her heart. 

Having her professional Football career in Australia at the tender age of 15, Alanna has thrived at the elite level, playing over 100 games in the Australian W-League and winning three championships and two Premiers Plates along the way.

Further afield, Alanna has solidified her position as one of the best in the game, playing in the National Women’s Soccer League in the USA, where her remarkable skills took her to the greatest of heights; winning a Championship with Western New York Flash, before going on to play over 60 games for Orlando Pride, and now Tottenham Hotspur Women. 

On the international stage, as an integral member of the Australian national team, The Matildas, Alanna has represented her country at two World Cups, two Asian Cups, one Olympics, and a multitude of international tournaments. 

When away from the football pitch, Alanna loves nothing more than cafe hopping, relaxing at the beach, or showcasing her avid interest in photography.  And as she is always looking for the next 1% that will propel her forward to greater heights, her ever-present and underlying drive to be the absolute best she can be on-the-field, has peaked her interest in body transformation and growth through the exploration of Pilates and Boxing.

In additional, Alanna is developing her experience and understanding of the game from ‘behind-the-lens’, extending her commitment and passion for Football through broadcast media.   Alanna is without question a rare mix of talent and commitment, artistry and strength, finesse and work-ethic – A delightfully personable and relatable demeanour with a never-say-die mentality.
