After 15 impressive years of playing professional soccer, Kelley O’Hara has announced her decision to retire.


Over the years, Kelley has played a monumental role in shaping women’s soccer as we know it, paving the way for herself on her journey to success in a male-dominated sport. The two-time FIFA Women's World Cup Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist is a driving voice for female empowerment and has made a name for herself in leading the charge for progress in sports.

“Kelley O’Hara is a force, on and off the field. It has been a true pleasure to work alongside her and root her on all these years and I cannot wait to see what she does next.”

Kevin Plank

Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Under Armour

Not only is Kelley a phenomenal soccer player, but she has also accomplished incredible things as a core member of the Under Armour family. Kelley was one of the first female athletes signed to Under Armour in 2013, acting as the face of the brand’s first female boot, the iconic ‘Ready for Battle’ 2023 Women’s soccer campaign, the Meridian Bra, and so much more – all while continuously pushing Under Armour to evolve and do better for the sake of athletes.

“Working with Kelley for years now, I have seen firsthand her passion, scrappiness and grit on full display. Her dedication to the game of soccer is unmatched, and she has set an incredible example of what it means to be a true competitor.”

The fire inside Kelley O’Hara is strong and will continue to burn well beyond her years in the NWSL. Thank you, Kelley, for showing athletes everywhere what it means to dig deep to uncover the best version of yourself, and cheers to many great things ahead.
