Lorraine Ming Fair (born August 5, 1978), better known as Lorrie Fair, was a member of the United States national soccer team. She currently plays for Chelsea in the FA Women's Premier League.Citation |last= |first= |title=Fair Coup as Chelsea sign US Star |url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/women/7222387.stm |accessdate=2008-01-02]

Her twin sister, Veronica (Ronnie) Ching Fair, was also a member of the national team, and when Ronnie was called in to participate in a game against England on May 9, 1997 at San Jose, California, it became the first time a pair of sisters played together in the Woman's National Team.

Lorrie and Ronnie both participated on Los Altos High School's female soccer team in Los Altos, California, where they grew up. They were born at Stanford Hospital, but moved to New York for three years before returning to the Bay Area in 1982. While Ronnie chose Stanford to go to college, Lorrie decided on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill instead, but not before being a two time NSCAA all-American and Parade magazine all-American. At UNC, she was picked as one of "Soccer America"'s freshmen of the year, and she helped lead UNC to the 1996 NCAA championship.

She joined the Under 20 national team in 1994, playing, among other events, in the Nordic Cup. In 1995, she was a member of the West Team at the US Olympic Festival, and she started practicing for the National team. She impressed so much during practice that she was named an alternate for the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games team that won the Gold. Soon after, she was able to make her debut in the team as an official player.

In 1999, Fair helped take the team to that year's FIFA Women's World Cup.

Lorrie, Ronnie and their brother all got their start and played for many years in AYSO [http://ayso43.org/ Region 43] .

On February 1, 2008, it was announced that she had signed for Chelsea Ladies as a player, for whom she had been working solely as an ambassador up to that point. Fair vowed to continue her work with the club at grass roots level. The move was significant as she became the first American to sign for a club in the Women's Premier League.
