The Scouting Report
In the final home game of the North American Soccer League’s 2013 spring season, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers take the pitch for a chance to avenge a road loss to the San Antonio Scorpions earlier in the season. The noisy home crowds and hidden alligator pits of Lockhart Stadium have fueled many victories for the Strikers—in 2012, they tied the league’s best mark with eight straight wins.
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.
