From the Top: 1975 Seattle Sounders

1975: It was the beginning of the 'Disco era' and the second season for the North American Soccer League (NASL) Seattle Sounders. The sophomore season for Seattle included the highlights of making the playoffs for the first time and adding more seats to Memorial Stadium to pack the place with over 17,000 fans. Seattle finished 15-7 in 1975 and were led in the scoring column by the 10 goals of British striker John Rowlands.

Our 1975 Seattle Sounders scrapbook is now online here, and linked in our 1975 Museum page. "The Hustle" was one of the top hits of 1975. Below you can watch some clips from the Sounders Soccer Show that aired during those early years.

Next: 1976
