Previously known as Miami FC, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers are a new crew of talented players who hope to conclude their sprint to the top of the North American Soccer League in the final championship-series game. After a stellar second half of the season, the Strikers’ hard-kicking lineup defeated No. 2 seed Puerto Rico Islanders in the semifinals, scoring 10 goals in three matches to gain the rights to host the championship’s deciding match as well as exclusive rights to Rodgers and Hammerstein’s vuvuzela songbook. Their rivals, the Minnesota Stars, enter the final series with nerves charging after a fist-whitening tiebreaker that ended 210 minutes of furious footwork in the semifinals. The exciting competition lifts the Strikers in reach of its first title in 22 years, promising to fill the 18,500-seat Lockhart Stadium with a host of full-throated fútbol fanatics.

Fort Lauderdale Strikers

The original Strikers were born in 1977, when the Miami Toros moved to Broward County. Donning their popular red-and-gold hooped uniforms, the team experienced instant success—so much so that Lockhart Stadium underwent two seating expansions to accommodate the club's rapidly growing fan base. During those years, a playoff game between the Strikers and New York Cosmos drew a crowd of 77,691, which still stands as the record for a U.S. Pro League soccer match and most people squished into a single soccer net.

Even with all their success, the Strikers relocated to Minnesota after the 1983 season. The team returned five years later, and for more than two decades, competed as part of several leagues. Finally, after a failed attempted to bring Major League Soccer to Miami, the Miami FC of the United Soccer League decided to officially adopt the Strikers moniker and move to the North American Soccer League for the 2011 season. The Strikers didn't waste any time announcing their rebirth, as they made the league's championship series that same season.
