NASL Soccer is a video game based on the North American Soccer League (1968–1984). The game came out in 1980.

Versions[edit]

Mattel released an Atari 2600 version of the game under its M Network label, renamed as International Soccer.[1]

Reception[edit]

NASL Soccer was covered in Video magazine's 1982 Guide to Electronic Games where the game's gameplay and implementation (its three-quarter perspective and scrolling playfield) were identified by reviewers as making it "fascinating even to those who don't care for the real sport".[2]:53
