Biography

As a graduate of the Sydney FC Youth Academy, Joel King made his senior debut in the final stages of the 2018/19 season. Later that year, King signed his first professional contract to ink with his boyhood club for the 2019/20 season.

King quickly became a regular fixture in Sydney’s starting eleven, as he started in 25 of his side’s 26 regular season games. The now 20-year-old played a critical role for his team, as they defeated Melbourne City in the Grand Final to claim the A-League Championship last year.

Now ahead of Tokyo 2020, King has enjoyed another year of regular first-team football with Sydney and will be fixated on displaying his prowess on the Olympic stage.
