The Soccer Bowl was the championship game of the North American Soccer League from 1975 to 1983. This event was tagged by NASL Commissioner Phil Woosnam who was trying to build a neutral-site championship event in the mold of the NFL's Super Bowl

Unlike the Super Bowl, the game was not denoted by Roman Numerals but the last two digits of the year would be used to denote what game it was.

As they hit financial problems, 1984 (in what would be the league's final year) saw the NASL abandon the neutral-site format for a Best of 3 series played at each team's home field.

Prior to 1975, the NASL had used a single game championship starting in 1972. When the league started in 1968 and again in the 1970 season, they played a two game aggregate goals. In 1969, with only 5 teams, the team with the most points at the end of the regular season was the champions. In 1971, the league used a best 2 games out of 3 system.
