Ria Stars were a South African football (soccer) club from Pietersburg. The club was owned by businesswoman Ria Ledwaba and nicknamed Manyora (Petty thieves).[1]

They were formed in 1989 and in 2000 they were promoted to the Premier Soccer League. In 2002 Ria Stars were bought out by the league for 8 million rand (roughly USD 800,000) in order to reduce fixture congestion.
