Biography

Dylan Pierias made his A-League debut for Melbourne City at age 16 in a clash against Brisbane Roar in February 2017, making him the first player in the competition’s history to have been born in the 21st century.

After seeing only occasional stints of game time with City, Pierias made the crosstown move to fellow Melbourne-based club Western United, where he has become an integral part of the club.

In the 2020/21 season, Pierias’ second season with United, the 21-year-old scored six goals in 17 appearances while playing in multiple positions on the pitch, displaying the sort of versatility that can become crucial in a gruelling Olympic tournament.

After the exploits of his 2020/21 campaign, Pierias was rewarded with a two-year contract extension at United.

And now with his Olympic debut on the horizon, Pierias will be hoping to continue his season’s performances at the Tokyo Games.
