The 1976-77 WHA season was the fifth season of the now defunct World Hockey Association (WHA). Prior to the season, the Toronto Toros moved to Birmingham, AL and became the Bulls. The Cleveland Crusaders, pushed out by the NHL's Cleveland Barons, attempted to move to South Florida but legal problems resulted in them moving to Minnesota to become the second version of the Fighting Saints. They met with little success there and folded after playing 42 games. The remaining 11 teams competed in the league, playing 80 or 81 games in the regular season. The Avco World Trophy Winners were the Quebec Nordiques.
