  • The Houston Stars were an association football team based out of Houston, Texas that played in the United Soccer Association. The league was made up of teams imported from foreign leagues. The Houston club was actually Bangu Atlético Clube from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. They were owned by Roy Mark Hofheinz, owner of the Houston Astros and played their home matches at the Astrodome, making them the first ever soccer team to play its matches indoors. Following the 1967 season, the USA merged with the National Professional Soccer League to form the North American Soccer League with the teams from the former USA having to create their rosters from scratch. (en)
  • Die Houston Stars waren eine amerikanische Fußball-Franchise aus Houston, Texas, die 1967 am Spielbetrieb der United Soccer Association (USA), sowie 1968 am Spielbetrieb der North American Soccer League (NASL) teilnahm. Die Stars gehörten Roy Hofheinz, dem Eigentümer des örtlichen Major-League-Baseball-Teams Astros sowie des Astrodome, der ihr Heimstadion wurde. Der Name Stars wurde, wie auch der Name der Astros und des Astrodoms, an den Status Houstons als Zentrum der US-Weltraumindistrie angelehnt. (de)
  • El Houston Stars fue un equipo de fútbol de los Estados Unidos que jugaron en la North American Soccer League, la desaparecida liga de fútbol más importante del país. (es)
  • Gli Houston Stars furono un club calcistico statunitense di Houston (Texas) che giocò solo due stagioni nel calcio professionistico, nel biennio 1967-1968. Si sciolse dopo aver disputato la stagione d'esordio della North American Soccer League. La squadra disputò l'unica edizione del campionato dell'USA-United Soccer Association (in pratica la NASL con un diverso nome, ma che conservava il diritto a fregiarsi del campionato di Prima Divisione su riconoscimento della FIFA) nel 1967: quell'edizione della Lega fu disputata utilizzando squadre europee e sudamericane in rappresentanza di quelle della USA, che non avevano avuto tempo di riorganizzarsi dopo la scissione che aveva dato vita al campionato concorrente della National Professional Soccer League I; la squadra di Houston fu rappresentata dai brasiliani del Bangu, formazione di Rio de Janeiro, ma non arrivò ai playoff. Neppure nel 1968, anno del primo campionato della NASL, la squadra raggiunse i play-off. Inoltre, nonostante le quasi 20.000 presenze di media per gara che ne avevano fatto la squadra con il miglior seguito nel 1967, nella NASL l'affluenza calò a poco più di 3.000 spettatori per partita, cosa questa che indusse i proprietari del club a porre fine all'avventura della franchise di Houston nel calcio professionistico nordamericano.
