Biography

Jordan Holmes will make his Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020 as goalkeeper for the Australian Olyroos.

Holmes, born in Sydney, played football for the Rockdale City Suns and Sydney United in the NSW Youth Premier League.

Despite his talent on the grass, he was also an avid athlete on another pitch - the baseball pitch. He played for the New South Wales Institute of Sport playing positions pitcher, batsman and shortstop at the regional, state and national level.

He proved his devotion to football in 2013, moving to South England to play for AFC Bournemouth. Since leaving Australia, Jordan has played for a handful of other clubs across the United Kingdom, including Weymouth FC for the 2015-16 season, and St. Mirren for the conclusion of the 2018-19 season.

Jordan has made 22 National League appearances, conceding only 29 goals in his six years in England.

The six-foot guardian of the goal has represented Australia for both the U19s and U20s Asian Championship, as well as the U20s World Cup Qualifiers. At 19-years-old, Jordan was named to the national Young Socceroos squad to play against Brazil in Wollongong. He is also the vice captain of the U23 Australian Olyroos squad.
