The second version of the Seattle Sounders was a soccer club which played in Seattle, the largest city in the U.S. state of Washington. The team, founded in 1994, was named after another Sounders team that played in the North American Soccer League of the 1970s and 1980s.

This version of the Sounders played in second-level leagues based in the U.S. that also had teams in Canada. It folded after the 2008 season when the team's owner received a new franchise in Major League Soccer known as Seattle Sounders FC.
