The Front cover depicted a familiar site for the next decade. Juli Veee holding the 1981-82 NASL Indoor Trophy in Tampa—The Sockers first Indoor title.
This program was for the Sockers first season in the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL). It was the magic season of the Sockers dynasty, they came into the MISL as the NASL Champions, but most MISL teams and players believed their league was superior.
