Brisbane Roar Team (2009)

Brisbane Roar (then Queensland Roar) were a founding member of the Westfield W-League in 2008. They were initially coached by Welshman Jeff Hopkins, who had played his football career predominantly in England, as well as representing Wales at international level. The playing roster featured a mix of youth and veterans, including founding captain and Matilda's stalwart, Kate McShea, and up-and-coming goalkeeper Casey Dumont.


Although Ballymore Stadium has been used predominantly as the Roar's home ground, other stadiums have also been used including Perry Park, Queensland Sport and Athletics Centre, Suncorp Stadium, Stockland Park and Cleveland Showgrounds.
