The Los Angeles Toros were an American professional soccer team based in Los Angeles, California that was a member of the National Professional Soccer League in 1967. The franchise was owned by Dan Reeves, who also owned the National Football League's Los Angeles Rams.

Following the merger of the NPSL and the United Soccer Association (USA) to form the NASL, the franchise moved to San Diego and became the San Diego Toros ahead of the 1968 NASL season, while the USA's Wolves remained in Los Angeles for 1968.[3]

In 1968 the team's top scorer was Pepe Fernandez.[4]
