        Big WSL representation at Olympics despite Team GB absence

        There won't be any Team GB at the 2024 Summer Olympics but there is still plenty of WSL representation at the games.

        The tournament begins in France on July 25th meaning that some English teams are set to be without star players for pre-season until at least August 10th – the date of the gold medal final in the Parc des Princes.

        Managers will still have plenty of time to work in their returning players into pre-season with the 2024/25 season not slated to start until the weekend of September 7th/8th.

        Unsurprisingly, Chelsea and Arsenal have the most players involved with seven from each club participating in France. That includes notable new arrivals such as the Gunners' Mariona Caldentey (Spain) and Sandy Baltimore (France) for the Blues. Chelsea fans may also be curious as to how Emma Hayes does in her role as the USA manager.

        As well as WSL players, there are also players from the Championship involved: all representing New Zealand: Lewes' Jacqui Hand, Sunderland's Katie Kitching, and newest Durham signing Hannah Blake.


        Here's the full breakdown of WSL players set to feature at the 2024 Olympics:

        Arsenal
        Cloé Lacasse (Canada), Steph Catley, Kyra Cooney-Cross, Caitlin Foord (Australia), Emily Fox (USA), Laia Codina, Mariona Caldentey (Spain)

        Aston Villa
        Adriana Leon (Canada), Kenza Dali (France), Anna Leat (New Zealand) 

        Brighton

        Chelsea
        Kadeisha Buchanan, Ashley Lawrence (Canada), Mayra Ramírez (Colombia), Sandy Baltimore (France), Sjoeke Nüsken (Germany), Catarina Macario (USA), Maika Hamano (Japan)

        As a football fan, I'm disappointed that there won't be any Team GB at the 2024 Olympics. But at least there's still plenty of WSL representation at the games. It's a shame some English teams will be without star players for pre-season, but they'll have time to work them in before the new season starts. I'm excited to see how Chelsea and Arsenal's players do, especially their new signings. And I can't wait to see how Emma Hayes does as

        As a football fan, I'm disappointed to hear that there won't be a Team GB at the 2024 Summer Olympics. However, I'm excited to see the strong representation of WSL players at the games. It will be tough for some English teams without their star players during pre-season, but I trust that managers will work them back in successfully. Good luck to all the players, especially the seven from Chelsea and Arsenal!
