Aidan Heaney (born 9 August 1969 in Newcastle upon Tyne) is a retired English football player who played in Major League Soccer (MLS) in 1996 with the New England Revolution. He had formerly played in Germany and for the Greensboro Dynamo, where he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006.

Heaney was given a red card in the third minute of a match against the Colorado Rapids on May 25, 1996. This stood as the MLS record for fastest ejection from a match for almost thirteen years, until Carlos Johnson established the new mark after being expelled two minutes into a New York Red Bulls 1 0 loss to the Kansas City Wizards at CommunityAmerica Ballpark on April 23, 2009.

Heaney is currently Head Coach of the men's soccer team at UNCW, having formerly managed the Appalachian State soccer team.
