Fort Lauderdale Strikers vs. Red Bull New York

According to Red Bull New York's website, their preseason schedules includes a stop right here in sunny Fort Lauderdale. Apparently they got here yesterday.

A scrimmage of sorts is set for Wednesday against the Chicago Fire, but surprisingly enough a Saturday date is slotted against Miami FC. I guess Red Bull New York hasn't gotten the memo yet, we're the Fort Lauderdale Strikers now.

Any news on this, who is going, where is it and when do I show up?

I'd rather be playing the Cosmos but they don't have a team, just a bunch of celebrities sitting on thrones.

That's Fort Lauderdale Strikers, If You're Nasty

Here it is folks. It's a moment the Striker Liker here has been dreaming of for a long time. It almost seems surreal. For almost 20 years we've been without the good ole Strikers and now, here they are.

Gotta give it up to the Supporters who made it out to Fort Lauderdale beach at 5pm to attend the press extravaganza and provide killer photos (see them here).

Let the cavalcade of Striker paraphernalia begin. I need shirts, jerseys, warm ups, bags, posters, keychains, stickers, you name it!

Don't have tickets yet, what are you waiting for?

By the way, discussions on the new logo can commence as well, anyone bummed that the sun burst is gone? or that Strikers is spelled in block and not the bubbly cursive we are accustomed to?

Sidenote: Where else can I get a free shirt?

Strikers to Officially Announce Name

So soon it will be official. But what will the name be? Just Strikers. Fort Lauderdale Strikers? South Florida Strikers? Miami FC/Strikers? Can someone tell me what's going on?

If you ask me, I vote for Fort Lauderdale Strikers. I just looks right, know what I'm saying? I'm just going to write Fort Lauderdale Strikers a few more times because it makes feel so good seeing it. I wonder if a new Fort Lauderdale Strikers logo will be unveiled and Fort Lauderdale Strikers uniforms.

I'm getting giddy, but I like it. Fort Lauderdale Strikers.

Fort Lauderdale Strikers.

Fan Section Ideas

Aside from big drums, horns, screaming fans, scarves and few huge flags; Striker Likers this year have to up the ante and create some attention for themselves. Take a look at what Swiss Club FC Zurich pulled out last week.

Full on Gene Simmons with movable tongue. Pretty classy. How's about we create some freaky optical illusions to play with opponents minds?

Let's get creative, any ideas?

Isn't It Billboard Time?

The regular season is almost at hand, so where's the promotions? We need billboards, bus shelters, bus wraps and we need them now!

The city needs to be blanketed in red and yellow. The Strikers are back!!!

Fan Club Pre Season Meeting this Saturday!

Join the Ultras this Saturday, February 5th at 12pm at the Hollywood Ale House to finally creep out of your winter slumber and get back into soccer fanaticism shape.

Have you been bummed since the World Cup? Premier League action not enough to keep you going? Well the time has finally come to get out those flags, horns, drums and face paint and get geared up for a local pro soccer season.

It's time to start planning supporters rallies, road trips, opening day craziness and somehow someway getting an MLS team in South Florida.

Besides the Miami FC/Strikers season, we've got Gold Cup matches and even Barcelona versus AC Milan in the summer. Excited yet!

The Hollywood Ale House is located at 3215 Oakwood Blvd., Hollywood, FL 33020 (it's the same plaza as Home Depot, you know, where Six Flags Atlantis used to be).

See you there!

Welcome to Fort Lauderdale DC United

I told you they'd come, and here they here. In the same place where only a week ago hundreds of hopefulls gathered for a chance to make the new Striker squad, league cellar dwellars DC United started their pre season training in front of Fort Lauderdale Stadium.

Maybe some Striker Likers should make it out and show the MLS what's up. Can we get a Strikers vs. DC United scrimmage game? Or just a bunch of guys in Strikers shirts playing against DC United, that would be cool too.
