After creating the Classic MLS Option File, I decided to create a Classic NASL Option File.
The Original NASL league started in 1968 and ended in 1984. The popularity of soccer during the 1966 FIFA World Cup in the USA gave birth to the NASL league just as the 1994 FIFA World Cup and popularity gave birh to Major League Soccer. Good article on correlation between NASL and MLS – By The Numbers… North American Soccer League vs Major League Soccer
The Classic NASL League file covers players through out the 70’s and early 80’s. There is some Legend European players on some of the squads that came over and played in the NASL. Before Bruce Grobbelaar went on to play over 400 games between the sticks at Liverpool, he did a spell at Vancouver Whitecaps.
The teams have no duplicate players (unless I missed it in my spreadsheet). Some teams will have players that spread 2 different team names. Examples: Atlanta Chiefs played 1973 as Atlanta Apollos. Toronto Metros, Toronto Metros-Croatia, and Toronto Blizzard. Miami Toros and Fort Lauderdale Strikers. San Jose Earthquakes and Golden Bay Earthquakes.
I just wished that the PS4 internal editing tools were alot better to be able to create those 70’s hairstyles along with those long sideburns to showcase those big bushy moustaches of the 70’s.
There is actually an easter egg in this file due to a certain player.
When installing, be sure to check the first box. Also remember to turn Live Updates off by clicking on R3 on controller if the squads do not appear correct in Kick Off.
Once you install Competition CEDs, Set the league to 18 teams.
Since this file is created over the fake PEU League and uses those teams fake players, this file is compatible with all future Data Packs.
Installs in PEU League

Like with previous versions, there is no duplicate players in the file – EXCEPT on 2 teams – NASL Select ’80 and Team America.
NASL Select ’80 – The NASL Select team was an All-Star team put together for Franz Beckenbauer’s “Farewell” game against the New York Cosmos.
Team America – was a failed attempt by the US Soccer Federation in creating a Professional US Men’s National Team. The team lasted 1 season and finshed dead last in the only season it played.
You can swap around Classic NASL teams from PEU and Other European to create your own 20 Team Classic NASL League.
Since V3 adds 16 New Classic NASL Teams, squads were updated from V2 to reflect team squads on the new added teams in V3 as well as the original squads on the PEU NASL teams. Rivals were updated as well.
If you choose to install V3 for the new added teams, you will need to install the V3 version of the NASL teams in PEU League (Included in file) to prevent duplicate players.
When installing, check both boxes.

If you have the V2.1 installed and do not plan on installing the V3 for 16 New Classic NASL Teams, then no need to update to V3 as stay with V2.1.
V3 is for PES 2021. There will not be a PES 2020 V3 version.

2 New Teams Added to Other European Teams
Here are two more Classic NASL teams for Other European – Baltimore Bays and Connecticut Bicentennials.
I wasn’t planning on making anymore teams due to teams in my Classic File. But since I went a different direction, that left me two teams spots available so I was able to add 2 more Classic NASL teams.
Due to team space in my Other European Teams, I am using Wigan and Orenburg already, so this completes my Classic NASL Team project.

Also in included in the file is Memphis Rogues as needs a roster update due to the new added teams Baltimore Bays and Connecticut Bicentennials.
