National Soccer League

(Canadian) National Soccer League 1926-1997


Hi, I am Chris Hesle.

My interest in soccer in North America started in the early 1980’s. It started with my uncle giving me a book about soccer. The book was written by David Brenner and called “The love of soccer”.

The book had great photos of the Cosmos, Tampa Bay Rowdies, Vancouver Whitecaps and Ft. Lauderdale Strikers of the North American Soccer League. Always in the background was the Ontario-based National Soccer League and its mystique.

When internet came alive in the mid-1990’s one of the first to provide news about soccer from Toronto, and indeed from North America, was Robin Glover. Through his determination the Canadian National Soccer League was given thorough coverage.

If you have info about players or clubs feel free to contact. I would love to publish anything you have that is related to the National Soccer League or just learn more.
