The Soccer Club (サッカー部, Sakkā-bu?) is the soccer (football)[1] team at Hikarizaka Private High School, whose disagreeable and obnoxious members play a key role in the Sunohara siblings' arc of Clannad ~After Story~.

Youhei Sunohara was on the soccer team until he was involved in a dispute, first with a rival team, and later with his own. These disputes led to him fighting both teams and eventually being expelled from the club. The club later made an appearance in With the Same Smile as That Day when Tomoya, Nagisa, and Mei, Youhei's sister, tried to convince the team to re-admit Youhei as a member. Mei believed this would allow Youhei to return to being the way he was when they were younger. Although the team says they'll hear Mei out if the three fetch soccer balls for them, they later turn her request down instantly and began to bully her. Tomoya and Youhei respond by fighting the team's members, and later each other.
