“Big-Time Soccer” The Remarkable Rise & Fall of the NASL will have a special screening at the George Eastman Museum on Jan. 15 at 4 p.m.

The feature-length documentary, which was produced by Rachel Viollet, will be screened for Flower City Union supporters and fan owners. Voilett will attend to provide insight into the making of the movie.

A 90-minute feature length documentary about the original North American Soccer League that generated a soccer explosion in the United States during the 1970’s. This colorful, and oftentimes controversial league attracted some of the greatest players of their generation: Pele, George Best, Johan Cruyff, Bobby Moore, and Franz Beckenbauer. Crowds of seventy thousand flocked to games as the NASL brought star power to a country where soccer had been virtually invisible just a few years earlier.

The Flower City Union will make its National Independent Soccer Association debut in 2022.
