Team Hawaii was a
soccer team based out of
Honolulu that played in the
NASL. The team only lasted one year, 1977. Their home field was
Aloha Stadium. Travel was a significant issue for the team and for other NASL clubs. To reduce travel, the team would often go on 4–5 game road trips to the mainland; visiting teams would usually coordinate playing in Hawaii with a trio against other west coast teams.
Hawaii began the 1977 season coached by Hubert Vogelsinger, but he became ill midway through the season; player Charlie Mitchell took over and served as player-coach for the remainder of the season.
