Jess Fishlock

Jess Fishlock is Wales’ most capped footballer and became the first player, male or female, to reach 100 caps for her country.

Jess’ club career has seen her play in nine countries in the last seventeen years.

Her numerous accolades include a UEFA Women’s Champions League winners medal, won with Olympique Lyonnais in summer 2019. Off the field Jess has been a role model for the LGBT community across the world and was recently awarded an MBE for services to both football and the LGBT community.

Jess' hopes for LGBTQ+ equality in sport

"I am passionate about increasing the visibility of LGBT role models in football and using my position to inspire others. It’s important for everyone to be ok with who they are, and that they feel safe within themselves.

Since I’ve got to that point I’ve been the best version of myself and I want others to feel the same.

Sport is a powerful vehicle for change and my hope is that whether you’re a fan or a player - from grassroots clubs to the top leagues in the world - we can create an open, accessible and safe environment for us all to thrive."
