Olivia Price (born 17 May 1996) is an Australian association football player, currently playing as a midfielder for Canberra United and previously captained Australia for the Australian National U20 team.

Club career

Sydney FC

Price signed with Sydney FC early in 2014 as an injury replacement for the last few rounds of the 2013–14 W-League Season. Price was re-signed by Sydney FC for the 2014 W-League Season. She made her debut for Sydney FC against Adelaide United on 14 September 2014, when she was substituted on in the 80th minute.[2]

Price made her first W-League Grand Final appearance in a 4–1 loss to Melbourne City on 31 January 2016 being subbed on in the 83rd minute. [3]

Still playing for Sydney FC in the 2016–17 season, Price made her first starting line up in a 2–0 win over Adelaide United on 27 November 2016.

Western Sydney Wanderers

Price joined Western Sydney Wanderers ahead of the 2017–18 season.[4] In her first season for the Wanderers, Olivia made a total of eight appearances scoring once in a blockbuster 4 to 3 win against Perth Glory. On the last game of the season against Sydney FC, Olivia dislocated her left knee which required her to have an operation in the off season.

Canberra United

During the W-League off season, Price was recovering from her knee operation. She was offered an opportunity to train with Canberra United while she was still in rehab with no contract offer on the table. Olivia moved interstate and started training and recovering with Canberra.[5] After fully recovering, Price showed enough to be offered a contract and joined Canberra United for the 2018–19 season W-League season saying she was very excited to work with coach Heather Garriock.[6] Olivia's first appearance in the starting line up for Canberra was on 2 December 2018, when she set up their second goal in a 2-0 win over Sydney FC.

International career

Price has represented Australia at both under-17 and under-20 level. She played in the team that finished runner-up to the Japanese under-23 side at the 2013 AFF Women's Championship.[7] She went on to play for the Young Matildas for the AFC U-19 Women's Championship.[8] Price played for the Young Matildas again in the qualifiers for the 2015 AFC U-19 Women's Championship in Vietnam and scored a brace in Australia's 19–0 win against Singapore.[9] On 5 May 2015 Price was named Captain of the Young Matildas[10] for their 7 – 0 win[11] over Indonesia in the AFF Championship.
