Kearney Irish won the American Soccer League in 1933-34 – usually called ASL II as there was an American Soccer League from 1921 to 1933 which was a different League despite the same name. It was the first season of the new League which was to be dominated by teams referencing immigrant groups.

Kearny scots won the League from 1936 to 1941 and from 1941 to 1953 Philadelphia Nationals and Philadelphia Americans won 9 Championships between them. New York Hakoah, a Jewish-American team won from 1956-1958 and from 1960 to 1964 the winners were Ukrainian Nationals Philadelphia.

The last winners of the American Soccer League II as a Major League were the Baltimore St. Gerards, who may also have had Irish connections.

While the ASL II operated as the Men’s Major Soccer League in the USA from 1933 to 1967 it was superceded by the North American Soccer League which ran from 1967 to 1983. The ASL II continued to operate as a second level also until 1983.
