Review of the season
In what the league called its 67th season they operated with nine teams in its first division and seven teams in the second division. The league decided to operate with a promotion-relegation system.
London City paid the London Marconi club $1 for their franchise rights, making a comeback in the NSL. Oshawa Italia was another new club in the National Soccer League.
Friuli joined the NSL Second Division. North York Strikers won the second division championship.
