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
