dbo:abstract
  • The Detroit Cougars were a soccer team based in Detroit, Michigan, which played in the United Soccer Association. The league was made up of teams imported from foreign leagues. The Detroit club consisted of players from Glentoran F.C. and their player-coach John Colrain of the (Northern) Irish Football League. Following the 1967 season, the USA merged with the National Professional Soccer League to form the North American Soccer League. The Cougars' home field was Tiger Stadium. Whenever a scheduling conflict arose, home games were moved to the University of Detroit Stadium. One such match on June 14, 1967 against the Houston Stars ended in an infamous player riot. (en)
  • La franchigia dei Detroit Cougars fece il suo esordio nell'USA - United Soccer Association, uno dei due campionati professionistici antecedenti alla NASL. Il campionato USA (riconosciuto da USSF e FIFA come torneo di prima divisione nazionale) era formato da squadre straniere chiamate a giocare nelle città statunitensi a nome dei club locali. Il club che giocò sotto il nome di Detroit Cougars furono i nordirlandesi del Glentoran. L'anno seguente, i Cougars formarono una squadra propria per partecipare alla prima edizione del campionato NASL, non riuscendo neanche stavolta a qualificarsi per i playoff. Al termine della stagione la franchigia fu coinvolta nella crisi economica che colpì la NASL, non riuscendo a iscriversi al campionato del 1968 e chiudendo definitivamente i battenti. (it)
