Cirilo "Pepe" Fernández (Uruguay, 14 July 1943) is a former Uruguayan soccer forward who played one season in the National Professional Soccer League, just over four in the North American Soccer League, one in the American Soccer League and five in the Netherlands.

Het started his career at Club Sport Emelec. In 1967, Fernandez played for the Los Angeles Toros of the National Professional Soccer League. In 1968, the NPSL merged with the United Soccer Association to form the North American Soccer League (NASL). When that happened, the Toros moved to San Diego. Fernandez remained with the San Diego Toros in 1968 where he was selected as a first team All Star. The Toros folded at the end of the season and Fernandez moved to the Kansas City Spurs for the 1969 season. He was once again a first team All Star as well as the NASL MVP. According to one source, Fernandez spent five seasons in the Netherlands at Go Ahead Eagles and HFC Haarlem.[1] He did not return to the NASL until 1974 when he signed with the expansion Seattle Sounders. He started the first three games of the season, but a vicious slide tackle by David Kemp broke his leg during the Sounders home debut putting him out for the season. Fernandez played only twelve games in 1975, then began the 1976 season when he was released after two games. He then signed with the expansion Tacoma Tides of the American Soccer League. The Tides went to the ASL playoff semifinals but folded soon after. Fernandez then played HFC Haarlem before returning to the Sounders for the 1981-1982 NASL indoor season.

He lives in Everett Washington where he owns an indoor soccer business.[2]
