Ashlyn Harris, former United States Women’s National Team & Gotham FC goalkeeper and current Global Creative Advisor for Gotham FC, made her debut in 2013 with the national team. She was a member of the 2015 and 2019 World Cup Champion team, is a 2x CONCACAF Champion, and is a 3x SheBelieves Cup Champion.
In 2016, Harris was named NWSL Goalkeeper of the Year after making 62 saves and having a 1.33 goals-against-average in 15 games. She was also named to the 2016 NWSL Best XI.
Ashlyn always dreamed big and set her standards high. During her senior year of high school, Harris knew UNC only gave full scholarships to players on the full national team, but, after expressing her dream to the head coach, UNC said they would find a way. Fast-forward four years: Harris graduated with a 3.3 GPA, the first in her family to graduate from college, after winning three national championships with the Tar Heels.
The youngest starter on the 2002 FIFA U-19 Women’s World Cup Team at just 16 years of age, Ashlyn is a 2x Goalkeeper of the Year and has amassed a stacked resume of accolades during her career. The Florida native is a strong veteran presence for the US Women’s National Team (USWNT) that shot to fame in 2019.
Ashlyn is known for her distinct sense of style, her love of expressing herself through fashion, and her extensive tattoo work. Ashlyn is a champion of self-expression and self-love, and, as a result, her fan base is extremely devoted. In 2021, Harris was named the 3rd most marketable athlete in the world.
Ashlyn has always been an advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and women’s rights and uses her platform to promote positive change.
In 2019, she married former teammate Ali Krieger, making them one of sports’ most beloved couples. They split time between New York and Florida and are parents to two young children: Sloane who they welcomed in February 2021 and Ocean who they welcomed in August 2022. Ashlyn and Ali also have two dogs – Logan and Storm.
In November 2022, Ashlyn hung up her cleats and retired from her professional playing career to join Gotham FC’s Front Office. Ashlyn and Ali ran a podcast through the 2022 World Cup called The Most Important Thing and will continue to engage in media in the near future. Ashlyn is extremely active on social media and loves creating content whether that be trends, relevant Tik Toks, creating her own reels with her family, pets, outfits, or just showing her daily life.Less
