Seattle Sounders was an American professional soccer team founded in 1994 that played in the American Professional Soccer League and the USL First Division. They were from Seattle, Washington.

The team, founded in 1994, was named after the original another Sounders team that played in the North American Soccer League from 1974-1983.

This version of the Sounders played in the USL First Division until after the 2008 season when the team's owner received a new franchise from Major League Soccer, the first division of soccer in the U.S. and Canada, called Seattle Sounders FC.

The team played their last season at the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, Washington. They used to play for many years at Qwest Field (now CenturyLink Field). 

The team's colors were blue and white.
