The National Soccer League (NSL) is the primary professional soccer league in the United States. Founded in 1968 with a mere 6 teams, the NSL is the newest of professional sports leagues to begin operating in North America, and is also the smallest, with 20 teams, divided equally between into Eastern and Western Conferences. The NSL's popularity began to peak in the late 1970s, and entered a slow decline soon after, a decline that has roughly stabilized as of 1997. The league has averaged roughly 13,000 fans per-game in each season over the past twenty years.
