The NASL folded before the 1985 season.  A few teams including the Cosmos, Roughnecks, and Earthquakes tried to survive by playing International friendlies.

I list 5 types of friendly games:
1. International competition
2. Local non-NASL competition. These were usually preseason warm up games.
3. NASL teams in tournaments such as the Sunshine International or the Trans-Atlantic Challenge Cup (TACC).  I do not list NASL preseason games.
4. Extra NASL exhibition games the Cosmos played in 1975 and 1976 to defer the cost of signing Pele.
5. Games not involving NASL teams, but played as part of an NASL package. These were usually doubleheaders.
