Charlotte Lady Eagles is an American women's soccer team, founded in 2000. Between 2002 and 2015 the Lady Eagles were a member of the United Soccer Leagues USL W-League, the second tier of women's soccer in the United States and Canada, and a member of the W-2 League between 2000 and 2002.

The team plays its home games at Dickson Field, Queens University in Charlotte, North Carolina. The club's colors are orange, sky blue and white.

The Lady Eagles are a division of Missionary Athletes International (MAI), an organization committed to sharing the message of Christianity through sports ministry. They are a sister organization of the MAI men's USL League Two franchises the Charlotte Eagles and the Southern California Seahorses.

While the W-League folded in 2015, MAI announced plans to continue training women and girls as players and coaches.[1] After two years playing an independent schedule, the Lady Eagles joined the Women's Premier Soccer League for the 2019 season.[2]
