The Houston Stars were an association football team based out of Houston, Texas that played in the United Soccer Association.[2] 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.
