The Palatine Celtic Soccer Club was founded in 1968 by Bill Hughes and Jimmy Kinsella, a transplanted Scotsman. Together, they were the first people in Palatine to organize local children into teams to play the game of soccer. Jimmy named the Club after his home club, Glasgow Celtic.
The Palatine Celtic Soccer Club is affiliated with the Palatine Park District and provides youth soccer programs for girls and boys ages 6-18. Many of the players on the William Fremd and Palatine High School varsity soccer teams have, at one time or another, played either Recreational and/or Travel soccer under the Celtic banner.
Palatine Celtic Soccer is also Home to The Celtic Cup Labor Day Tournament. Featuring over 400 teams.
