Windsor Stars are a Canadian soccer team based in Windsor, Ontario, originally founded in 2004. The club plays in the semi-professional League1 Ontario, part of the third division in the Canadian soccer league system. The team play their home games at McHugh Park. The team's colors are sky blue and white.
The Windsor Stars were originally founded as the Windsor Border Stars and joined the Canadian Soccer League (CSL) in 2004 but later folded in 2008. In early 2011, the league announced that former Border Star defender, Filip Rocca, was awarded a franchise and would resurrect the club in Windsor. The Border Stars were re-branded as Windsor Stars Pro Soccer and returned to the CSL for the 2011 season.
Rocca pledged to build strong connections with the local soccer community and district association, Essex County Soccer Association, in order to avoid the failure that saw the Border Stars fold. The club owes its history and its name to the Windsor Stars of the 1970s and the Windsor Wheels of the 1980s from the Canadian National Soccer League, the predecessor of the CSL.
The team re-launched with two head coaches, Steve Vagnini and Jeff Hodgson, who were announced as head coaches in February 2011.
Following the de-sanctioning of the CSL by the Canadian Soccer Association in 2013, the Windsor Stars Pro Soccer Club was announced as one of the 10 teams participating in the inaugural season of League1 Ontario, a newly formed competition in the third division of Canadian soccer, on April 8, 2014. With home games being played at McHugh Park in Windsor, the club has sought funding to turn the current field into a stadium with proper seating and scoreboard to boost interest in the area.
