The Remarkable Rise & Fall of the NASL

Join us for this special movie screening of feature length documentary film, "Big-Time Soccer" produced by Rachel Viollet.

A ninety-minute feature length documentary about the original North American Soccer League which generated a soccer explosion in the United States during the 1970's. This colorful, and oftentimes controversial league attracted some of the greatest players of their generation: Pele, George Best, Johan Cruyff, Bobby Moore, and Franz Beckenbauer. Crowds of seventy thousand flocked to games as the NASL brought star power to a country where soccer had been virtually invisible just a few years earlier.
