On June 17, 1985—after winning five North American League Soccer championships bringing some of soccer's biggest names to the United States—the New York Cosmos played their last game in front of more than 8,500 fans at Giants Stadium. Nearly three decades of silence followed. But in 2013, the club was revived, much to the delight of the city's fans and growing number of cobweb-covered soccer balls. That year, the Cosmos returned to the pitch and promptly re-established themselves as one of the NASL's elite teams, capturing their sixth Soccer Bowl with a 1-0 victory over the Atlanta Silverbacks.
