INTERNATIONAL SOCCER LEAGUE I Final Team Standings and Playoff Results This league was started in 1926 when three teams from the ASL I joined up with four Canadian teams from their semi-pro leagues. The league was originally formed on January 10, 1926. They played a two-part schedule through the summer and early fall. All the teams remained members of their respective national leagues during the existence of the ISL I which remains in history primarily as the first attempt in North America to create an international league. During the 1st half of the season, each American team played each Canadian team once at the Canadian home field. In the second half, each Canadian team traveled south to play the Brooklyn Wanderers once, except Toronto Ulster which played a second game against Brooklyn. Montreal Scottish were replaced by Montreal maroons for the second half. On November 20, 1926, the Nathan Strauss Cup capped the season, being won by Toronto Ulster.
