The Woosnam Cup is an annual award given to the North American Soccer League team with the best regular season, as determined by the NASL points system on aggregate between the Spring and Fall championship seasons in year. Akin to the Supporters' Shield in Major League Soccer, the minor premiership of Australasian sports (called a "premiership" by the A-League), and the President's Trophy of the NHL, the Woosnam Cup will be awarded each year annually in order to recognize overall consistent performance through the calendar year. Planning is currently underway to ensure it is awarded prior to the end of the 2014 season. The Woosnam Cup will be presented retrospectively to the prior year winners. The Woosnam Cup derives its name from Phil Woosnam, long time Commissioner of the original North American Soccer League who died during the summer of 2013.
