Pat Fidelia (born April 16, 1959 in Port-au-Prince) is a retired Haitian-American soccer forward who spent four seasons in the North American Soccer League, two in the American Soccer League and one in the United Soccer League. He also earned one cap playing with/for the national team.
Fidelia was born in Haiti and at some point during his childhood moved to the United States. He attended Rancocas Valley Regional High School then Mercer County Community College, both in New Jersey.
The Houston Hurricane of the North American Soccer League (NASL) drafted Fidelia with the last pick (96th overall) of the 1978 Draft. It then traded him to the Philadelphia Fury. While playing as a substitute for most of the 1978 season with the Fury, Fidelia led the team in scoring with eight goals. The Fury folded at the end of the 1980 season and Fidelia moved to the Montreal Manic for the 1981 season. In 1979, he signed with the Cleveland Force of the Major Indoor Soccer League, playing 29 games for the team during the 1979-1980 season. In 1982, Fidelia left the NASL for the Carolina Lightnin' of the American Soccer League. He scored eight goals that season. The ASL folded following the 1983 season and the Lightnin' jumped to the United Soccer League, changing its name to the Charlotte Gold. The Gold lasted only the 1984 season before folding. Fidelia retired from playing professionally.
Fidelia continued to play for amateur teams in the Charlotte Amateur Soccer League. In the late 1980s he played for Fish Fare and was with Pepsi in 1990.
After retiring from playing, Fidelia coached high school soccer at Charlotte Christian. In April 1989, he resigned, but was hired by Christ School in Arden, NC. He currently coaches at Carolina Day in Asheville, NC.
