Western Sydney Wanderers FC is an Australian soccer team who currently play in the A-League, the national domestic soccer competition. Colloquially known as Western Sydney, it was founded in 2012 as the tenth member of the then nine-team league.[1] The A-League competition consists of a Regular Season and a Finals Series of the top six teams, with the Premiership being awarded to the club who finishes on top of the table in the Regular Season, and the Championship to the winner of the Grand Final.[2] Winning either of those trophies qualifies a club for the AFC Champions League. In 2014, Football Federation Australia started the FFA Cup, a knock-out cup competition based along the lines of England's FA Cup.

The Wanderers immediately won its first premiership, finishing on top in 2012–13, but they lost the Grand Final to Central Coast Mariners. They finished second place in 2013–14 and 2015–16, but lost the Grand Final to respectively Brisbane Roar and Adelaide United. The Wanderers were qualified for the 2014 AFC Champions League due to their premiership and surprisingly won the final against Al-Hilal FC. They also were qualified for the 2014 FIFA Club World Cup, finishing sixth.

This list includes players who have made at least one on-field appearance (either as a starting player or as a substitute) for the Wanderers in a competitive match. Friendly matches are not included. The Wanderers have had several players compete for them who have been capped at international level, before, during or after their time with the team.
