About Scott Chipperfield
Scott Chipperfield began his career as a Bellambi Junior in the hot-bed of Illawarra football.
Affectionately known as ‘Chippers’, he began his professional career with the local National Soccer League club Wollongong Wolves in 1996.
Chipperfield was a driving force in the Wolves team that swept to back-to-back NSL titles in 2000 and 2001, and won the Oceania Club Championship in 2001. That club success and a growing international profile with the Socceroos earned Chipperfield a move to Swiss Super League club FC Basel.
It was the start of a prodigious trophy haul for Chipperfield, who won seven league titles and six Swiss Cups with Basel.
Scott played his debut game for Australia in the Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane as a substitute during the 3 -1 win against Fiji on 25 September in the 1998 Oceania Nations Cup.
