The Houston Hotshots are a semi-professional indoor soccer team in Houston, Texas. They will play in the Premier Arena Soccer League (PASL) starting in 2015/16. From 1994 to 1997 and 2000-2001, the Houston Hotshots were a full professional indoor soccer team in Houston, Texas. They played in the Continental Indoor Soccer League (CISL) from 1994 to 1997,[1] and moved to the World Indoor Soccer League in 1999 after the CISL folded.[2] The Hotshots folded in early 2001 after failing to attract new investors.[3] On June 28, 2015, William Alsobrook filed the necessary paperwork to revive the club and announced his intention to field a team in the upcoming Premier Arena Soccer League Season.[4]
