With the formation of the North American Soccer League in 1968 after the merger of the two competing League in 1967 (United Soccer Association, and the National Premier Soccer League – the latter featuring European and South American Teams guesting as American teams in a Summer League in USA), a number of the NASL clubs went on expended World Tours over the Winter of 1967-68 (during the North American off-season).

Dallas Tornado, under the stewardship of Bob Kap, who in the 1970s would go on to try and bring Professional American Football to Europe (see Intercontinental Football League 1970-1978 ), went on a 44-game tour, which resulted in 10 Wins 9 Draws and 25 Losses.

Other tours included Chicago Mustangs playing 9 games in Europe and South America, as well as playing in a preseason tournament in Florida against South American opposition, and the two Canadian Clubs, Vancouver Royals (who gave a good account of themselves in a 0-4 loss to the unofficial World Club Champions, Racing Club of Argentina), and Torinto Falcons.

Detroit Cougars managed big wins against the Jamaican National Team and a Haitian Club side, and St. Louis had a tour lined up that was to take in Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Guatemala.
