This is a list of foreign players in the Australian W-League, which commenced play in 2008. The following players must meet both of the following two criteria:

  1. Have played at least one W-League game (including finals). Players who were signed by W-League clubs, but did not play in any competitive games, are not included.
  2. Are considered foreign, i.e., outside Australia determined by the following:
A player is considered foreign if she is not eligible to play for the national team of Australia.

More specifically,

  • If a player has been capped on international level, the national team is used; if she has been capped by more than one country, the highest level (or the most recent) team is used. These include Australia/New Zealand players with dual citizenship.
  • If a player has not been capped on international level, her country of birth is used, except those who were born abroad from Australian parents or moved to Australia at a young age, and those who clearly indicated to have switched her nationality to another nation.

Clubs listed are those for which the player has played at least one A-League game—and seasons are those in which the player has played at least one W-League game.

As of December 2016, 22 different nations have been represented in the W-League. Nigeria is the most recent nation to be represented with Francisca Ordega debuting for Sydney FC on 23 December 2016.
