I fell in love with soccer growing up in New York City in the 1970s. I was a fan of the New York Cosmos of the North American Soccer League (NASL). My soccer video collection started with the original broadcasts of NASL games. I now have over 350 DVDs of NASL games, listed below. Here are my Ten Favorite NASL Games

In the 1980s I started following the US National Soccer Team, and I have recorded every US National Team match for the past 20 years. They are listed on the "Other International Matches" section of this web site. (Just click the green circle above.) Here is an interview I did on NPR about the history of the US National Team. And here is an article about my quest to find a video of the 1980 USA victory over Mexico in a World Cup Qualifier.

All of these games are the complete original broadcasts. I record on DVD. I would prefer to trade for NASL matches. However, if you have nothing to trade, please e-mail me at DaveBrett@austin.rr.com and I will send ordering instructions...This web site was updated August, 2014.
