Vancouver Whitecaps v Tampa Bay Rowdies, 1979: Video
In our latest flashback to the history of soccer in North America, we’ve uncovered another NASL video for you. This time it’s from the 1979 Soccerbowl featuring Vancouver Whitecaps versus Tampa Bay Rowdies, live from Giants Stadium in New Jersey.
Be sure to watch the video to see the cheesy opening graphics from ABC and the late Jim McKay hosting the game for American viewers who was joined by Paul Gardner.
