We are getting closer and closer to the Cosmos returning to the Soccer Bowl for the first time in 31 years. Here’s a little throwback to the Cosmos’ second trip to the championship in 1977.
Civic Stadium (now Jeld-Wen Field) in Portland, Oregon was packed with over 35,000 spectators (floor seats anyone?) who came to watch the New York Cosmos take on the Seattle Sounders in Soccer Bowl ’77 on August 28th, 1977. Steve Hunt (SB MVP) and Giorgio Chinaglia each scored a goal to help the Cosmos beat the Sounders 2-1.
