From Ohio History Central
The Cincinnati Comets was a professional soccer team in Cincinnati, Ohio. The team played in the American Soccer League (ASL), a league that existed from 1933 until 1983. The Comets played only four seasons (1972-1975), winning the ASL championship in its first season. In the next three years, the Comets failed to repeat its first season’s success, although the team returned to the championship series in 1973. The squad collapsed at the end of the 1975 season, principally due to a declining fan base.
