The Scouting Report

As the 2014 campaign gets underway, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers will look to blitz the league with new weapons acquired from Europe. Though he started stalking the sidelines in last year’s fall season, head coach Gunter Kronsteiner—from Austria—will begin his first full season at the helm. And on his team will be two fresh faces from the German Bundesliga—forward Marius Ebbers and keeper Oka Nikolov—to help revamp the lineup, promising a more potent offense and a defense that will make the opposition seem slow without having to stuff knockwurst in their cleats.

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.
