Alianza began as an Hispanic All-Star team from the Houston Soccer Association.[1] The team entered the LSSA for the 1988 season and continued to exist until folding before the 1992 season.[2] During its early existence, Victor Delgadillo managed the team which was composed of several ex-professionals from Mexico and Central America who now played strictly as amateurs.[3]
