Soccer, mostly, but some other stuff, too

All-Time NASL Standings

without comments

(A work in progress.)

All-time standings and playoff results for the original North American Soccer League, which played from 1968 to 1984. Standings are presented in the “NASL Format” (which awarded various points for victories in regulation, overtime and shootout, plus bonus points for goals scored up to a maximum of three) and in the “Modern” format of 3-1-0, counting all overtime and shootout games as draws, simply to help make meaningful comparisons to the present. Each team’s overtime and shootout records are also broken out for each season.
