Soccer, mostly, but some other stuff, too

Attendance Project: NPSL

with 2 comments

Year-by-year attendance figures for the league that began life as the American Indoor Soccer Association and became the National Professional Soccer League. This is NOT the current NPSL (National Premier Soccer League), which is a low-rent outdoor league that has no connection to this NPSL (or to the NPSL of 1967). As you can see, I’m missing some team information. If you can fill in the blanks, please let me know.
