Australia's first national league was born in the dining room of the St George club. The date was 5 April 1975 when representatives of Hakoah, St George, Brisbane Lions, Marconi, Adamstown, Western Suburbs, APIA, Adelaide Juventus and West Adelaide Hellas met and signed a resolution to "establish a National Soccer League within the shortest possible time."


By 1977, the league was in business, following many years of vague discussions and idle planning on the subject. Interestingly, in the meeting minutes, Hakoah owner Frank Lowy said, "Sir Arthur George [Australian Soccer Federation president] has told us that he had done all he could to get this National League started but failed; now it is up to the clubs to get the job done."


This design features all inaugural National Soccer League clubs (sponsored by Philips and known as the PSL), in order of the 1977 standings. Hakoah Eastern Suburbs (Sydney City) were champions.
