Moya Dodd ao

Former Matildas Vice-Captain, lawyer, equality and inclusion advocate and author

Moya Dodd AO is a Former Matildas Vice-Captain, lawyer and equality advocate.

She played in FIFA’s first ever women’s tournament in 1988.  Twenty-five years later, she joined the governing body of FIFA – among the most privileged and male-dominated institutions in the world – as one of the first women in its 108-year history.

At the highest levels of football governance, Moya found integrity and gender issues writ large. She was one of only 3 of 27 FIFA Executive Committee members who declined a $25,000 gift watch at the 2014 World Cup.  A year later, she found herself in a luxury Zurich hotel as her colleagues were arrested in a dawn raid. 

As the ‘FIFAGate’ scandals unfolded, Moya led the #womeninFIFA reform movement, becoming ‘the driving force in the recent push for women within FIFA’ (New York Times) and ‘one of the most credible and outspoken voices for change within the organization’ (Vice Sports). 

Applying her experience over 20 years in law and business, Moya will bust some myths about women’s football and offer new perspectives on how we assess value.  

Moya brings unique insights into complex issues of equality and change, through the lens of sport.
