Be sure to check out a great piece written by Robert Scorca in the first of a multi part series detailing the history of Soccer in South Florida called "Humble Beginnings". They didn't start in South Florida at all, it began in Washington and here is a little of the story:
The history of the Fort Lauderdale Strikers goes back before Fort Lauderdale.
The team even goes back before the North American Soccer League. The N.A.S.L.
was soccer in it's heyday. Players like Pele, George Best, Gordon Banks, Bobby Charlton, Bobby Moore, "Nene" Cubillas, etc. all graced the fields in the United States and Canada but I am getting ahead of myself...
