Big-Time Soccer: The Remarkable Rise & Fall of the NASL


Nearly 40 years since its demise, the North American Soccer League continues to linger in the memories and imaginations of soccer fans across the United States — and beyond. The colorful, oftentimes controversial league attracted some of the game’s greatest players: Pele, Best, Cruyff, Muller, Beckenbauer, to name a few. Crowds of 70,000-plus flocked to games as the NASL brought star power to a country where soccer had been virtually invisible just a few years earlier.

It was as if a huge soccer circus had arrived to entertain America. But it couldn’t last. For many fascinating reasons, the NASL did not survive.

Big-Time Soccer tells the story of the league, its unique characters, and the legacy it left to future generations of soccer fans.
