The Story

Following the large North American TV audience of over 1 million for the 1966 World Cup led American sports investors to believe there was an untapped market for soccer in the U.S. and Canada. FIFA sanctioned 2 leagues, the United Soccer Association (USA…get it…) and National Professional Soccer League. Neither had much independent success, so the two leagues merged on December 7, 1967 to form the North American Soccer League (NASL). With kitschy American spins on The Beautiful Game, like calling the final the Soccer Bowl, the league saw moderate success through the 60s and 70s. Popularity peaked in the late 1970s and 80s with big name players like Pele, Franz Beckenbauer,and George Best joining the league after storied international careers. Ultimately, the league folded in 1985, but not without leaving a string of absurd team names, logos and uniforms.
