Career Highlights

Fleming comes to the Rose City following a four-year stint in England with the historic Chelsea FC, where she won three-consecutive Women’s Super Leagues and three-consecutive Women’s FA Cups. In her first season with Chelsea, she also won the FA Women’s League Cup and the Women’s FA Community Shield, while finishing as the runners-up in the 2020/21 UEFA Women’s Champions League, ultimately falling to FC Barcelona.

In four seasons with Chelsea, Fleming appeared in 65 league games, recording 10 goals and three assists, with an additional goal and assist in 21 matches across UEFA Women’s Champions League play. In November of 2021, Fleming was named the FA Women’s Super League Player of the Month, one of only four players to receive such an award throughout her four seasons with Chelsea.

Fleming made her Canada Women’s National Team debut in December of 2013 at 15 years old, at the time becoming the second-youngest ever to appear for the Canucks. Since then she has gone on to play in 123 games, scoring 19 goals, while assisting an additional six goals. Fleming is the reigning Canada Women’s Player of the Year, an award she recently won for the third-consecutive year, as well as a three-time U-20 Canada Women’s Player of the Year (2015, 2016, 2017) and the 2014 U-17 Canada Women’s Player of the Year.

Her contributions on the field have helped Canada secure the country’s first ever Gold Medal at the Tokyo Summer Olympics, as well as the 2016 London Summer Olympic Bronze Medal. At the 2020 games Fleming scored the game-tying goal in the final against Sweden which pushed the match into penalties, of which the squad would go on to win 3-2, giving Canada its first major tournament win in its history. She also scored the lone goal against the United States in the semifinal match to earn a berth in the finals.

Fleming previously played collegiately at UCLA where she was a two-time MAC Hermann Trophy finalist and three-time All-American, recording 25 goals and 22 assists in 75 matches for the Bruins.
