Summary
The first complete look at the ambitious, star-studded NASL, "Rock 'n' Roll Soccer" reveals how this precursor to modern soccer laid the foundations for the sport's tremendous popularity in America today. Bringing to life the color and chaos of an unfairly maligned league, soccer journalist Ian Plenderleith draws from research and interviews with the men who were there to reveal the madness of its marketing, the wild expectations of businessmen and corporations hoping to make a killing out of the next big thing, and the insanity of franchises in scorching cities like Las Vegas and Hawaii
Summary
A history of America's upstart league reveals how a fledgling NASL attracted many of the world's best players, drawing on research to recount lesser-known stories of pivotal competitions, marketing strategies, and unlikely franchises
