Spokane Shadow are an American soccer team, founded in 1996. The team is a member of the Evergreen Premier League, one of United States Adult Soccer Association's elite amateur leagues. From 1996 to 2005, they played in the United Soccer Leagues Premier Development League (PDL), the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid. The men's team folded when the franchise was terminated by the PDL after the 10-year-old artificial turf at their home ground, Joe Albi Stadium in Spokane, Washington was declared unsafe for play.

Spokane's place in the Western Conference Northwest Division of the PDL was taken by Tacoma F.C. The team was revived in 2014. The Spokane Shadow now play in the soccer stadium at Spokane Falls Community College and compete in the Evergreen Premier League (EPLWA).
