The NASL

The New York Cosmos, Tampa Bay Rowdies, and Fort Lauderdale Strikers names have carried on from the league’s early years and they are joined by the Carolina RailHawks, FC Edmonton, Indy Eleven, Miami FC, Minnesota United FC, Ottawa Fury FC, Puerto Rico FC, Rayo OKC and Jacksonville Armada FC in 2016.
