The Oakland Clippers were a soccer team based out of Oakland, California that played in the non-FIFA sanctioned National Professional Soccer League (NPSL). Their home field was Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

The Clippers brought the first-ever national professional championship in any sport to the City of Oakland. Following the 1967 season, it joined the newly formed North American Soccer League (NASL), the result of the merger between the NPSL and the United Soccer Association (USA). From September 1968 to June 1969 the Oakland Clippers, now playing as the California Clippers, played an independent schedule against top foreign club teams while waiting for the North American Soccer League to become reconstituted.
