Cosmopolitan Soccer League

Maintained by David Litterer The Cosmopolitan Soccer League, formerly known as the German-American Soccer League is one of the premier amateur soccer leagues in the country, as well as one of the oldest. Formed in 1923, it recently celebrated its 75th annuversary. Many National Challenge Cups (US Open Cup), National Amateur titles and state championships were won by GASL/CSL teams, and many prominent national players have come up through their ranks, the most recent being Claudio Reyna of the US National team. Originally called the German-American Soccer League, it changed its name in 1977, and required their clubs to Americanize their names (a decision which was reversed a few years later).
