Danish forward Hannah Holgersen joins Brisbane Roar 

Brisbane Roar is pleased to announce Danish forward Hannah Holgersen joining the club ahead of the 2023/24 Liberty A-League season.  

Holgersen played football locally in Denmark before joining Brøndby Idræts Forening (BIF) after guidance from the U15 Youth National Team coaches to play more competitively, where she remained and played with their U18 team.  

After spending time at a boarding school, she returned to football in 2017 and started playing in Copenhagen with B93 which saw them work their way up to the best league in Denmark, 3F Kvindeligaen.  

In 2020, Holgersen joined AGF in the same league, before making the trip to Australia for something new. 

She made 25 appearances in the top-flight Danish League, scoring three goals during her time in the competition.  

She made her Liberty A-League debut last year with Adelaide United, where she played for three minutes and then injured her MCL which saw her out of the game for the remainder of the season.  

The Danish forward is eager to give the Liberty A-League another shot, now with the Brisbane Roar. 

“I can’t wait to get started in Brisbane, so thankful for the opportunity and I just want to show myself and everyone else what I’m capable of,” Holgersen said.  

“I’m excited for a new and exciting environment and come out on the pitch full time again. I’m more inspired than ever, after watching [the] World Cup games,” she added.  

“I really hope that Australia is ready to keep riding the women’s soccer wave and come out to the A-league games. I want to show this club what I can do, and help bringing some good results in.”  

Head Coach Garrath McPherson is pleased to welcome a player with such strength in the forward line after Holgersen showcased this talent in the top-flight league in Denmark.  

“Speed, power, and an attacking mindset are three key qualities needed for success in our competition. Hannah has shown all three across her career in the top-flight in Denmark,” McPherson said.  

“Hannah provides us with an attacking weapon who can be deployed in a number of positions to create and score goals,” he added. 

“She is so excited at an opportunity to transition from Denmark to the A-League, this eagerness to take her opportunity is something that really excites me and the coaching team.”
