The inspirational story of the past, present and future
of Australian women's football - its players, fans, and the game they love.

Australian
women's football rides high on the sporting landscape now, but this book shows
that success has been one-hundred years in the making. It shares stories of
triumph in the face of overwhelming odds, and tales of heartbreak and obstacles
that seem insurmountable. But it is also about community, endurance and
collective success.
Eye-opening
and celebratory, it tells the story of amateur women kicking a ball around a
century ago to Australia's national team being one of the best in the world.
The Matildas are forty years old and no longer have to wear hand-me-down men's
kits, pay for their own medical insurance and do it all for love not money. But
there have been no free kicks along the way as they have faced prejudice and
even outright hostility.

Never Say Die takes in dusty archives, rainy
pitch-side evenings and heart-breaking and heart-warming interviews - including
with FIFA and FFA board members, Matildas past and present, W-League coaches
and players, state and club administrators. But at its heart are fans from
every level of the game who could not love it more.

'Never
Say Die is the book
the women's game has been waiting for. Crawford and McGowan bring stories from
across a century of football into one place to highlight a rich, remarkable,
previously uncaptured history.' - Craig Foster
