Nine Nine Eighty Nine

Nine Nine Eighty Nine. Remember the date.

It was the Strikers only national title in their history. Back in 1989, American professional soccer was split into two divisions; the ASL (the American Soccer League) and the WSL (the Western Soccer League). The Ft. Lauderdale Strikers were powerhouses in the ASL but it was in 1989 that the Strikers took that dominance to the Left Coast.

On September 9th, the Strikers faced the San Diego Nomads in San Jose. After 90 minutes the Strikers were crowned champions with a convincing 3-1 victory.

So just remember the date.

Nine Nine Eighty Nine.
