The Globe -- Bethlehem
Tuesday, July 9, 1918

Prospects for soccer next season are exceptionally bright. New leagues are being formed in different sections of the country, the shipbuilding yards and munitions plants realizing that the game is a great recreation for the spectators at a time when no other open air games can be played. The National League will be the premier in the east and will be composed of eight of the strongest clubs playing the game. Bethlehem Steel will be represented by an exceptionally strong team next season and several new players will be seen in the Bethlehem lineup. Soccer will receive an international tinge by the appearance this fall of a team representing Belgium. There is no doubt but that the National Champions will be their main opponent after a series of three games will be arranged.
