Hibernian Saints were an American soccer team, founded in 1993. The team was a member of the Pacific Coast Soccer League (PCSL), a recognised Division IV league in the American Soccer Pyramid which features teams from western Canada and the Pacific Northwest region of the United States of America. The Saints last participated in the PCSL in 2006. They were the next best soccer in Seattle besides the Sounders while operating.[1]

The team played in the PCSL under four different names: Seattle FC (1995), Seattle Hibernian (1996-2004), Hibernian & Caledonian (2005), and Hibernian Saints (2006). The team were PCSL champions four times, in 1996, 1999, 2000 and 2001. The women's team were league cup champions in 2001 and 2005.[2] The women's team merged with the Seattle Sounders Women before the start of the 2006 season.[3]

The Saints played their home matches at the Starfire Sports Complex in the city of Tukwila, Washington, 11 miles south of downtown Seattle. The team's colors were white and green.
