The Tacoma Stars are an American indoor soccer team founded in 2003 as a member of the Premier Arena Soccer League (PASL-Premier). The team is named after the Tacoma Stars that played in the original Major Indoor Soccer League from 1983-1992. The Stars won two PASL-Premier Championships (Summer 2004 & Winter 2009-2010).[1]

The Stars made the transition to professional status and joined the Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL) for the 2010-11 season. In 2012-13 season, the head coach was Joe Waters as the team moved into the new Pacific Sports Center.[2]

The Stars went on hiatus on August 23, 2013. An amateur version of the club participated in the Premier Arena Soccer League as the Tacoma Galaxy in the 2013-14 season.[3] On January 10, 2014, the Pacific Sports Center was placed into receivership, putting the future of the facility and the franchise in question.[4]

In June 2014, it was announced that the Tacoma Stars would return to play in the Western Indoor Soccer League (WISL) at the Tacoma Soccer Center.

In January 2015, team owner Lane Smith acquired the assets of the failed Seattle Impact of the Major Arena Soccer League and announced that the Stars would complete the Impact's 2014-15 season at the ShoWare Center in Kent, Washington, while completing their WISL obligations.[5][6][7][8]
