Parramatta Power Soccer Club were an professional association football club who were based in the Western Sydney city of Parramatta. They played in the National Soccer League from season 1999-00 until the league folded in 2004. The Power were runners up to Perth Glory in the 2003–04 season of the NSL, both on the ladder and in the Grand Final, after Perth took control in extra time and scored the golden goal winner in horrendous weather to become the final NSL champions.

The club was backed by the Parramatta Leagues club which also owns the Parramatta Eels rugby league team. The club played at Parramatta Stadium (the home of the Eels) and played in gold and blue (the Eels colours). The club suffered from poor attendances throughout its existence, partly because of its links to the Eels, as well as it being in the already crowded Western Sydney football market.
