Lockhart Stadium 
For those worried about the developments referring to the possible closure of Lockhart and Fort Lauderdale stadiums. Our friends at Inside Minnesota Soccer have an interview with Strikers team President Tim Robbie who puts everything in a lighter note.
“It’s difficult to envision a scenario that would not allow us to complete our season here at Lockhart,” said Robbie. “The city of Fort Lauderdale and particularly Mayor Jack Seiler are working very diligently behind the scenes in order to assure there will be no interruption of the Strikers season. I think the chances of us having to move out this season are very, very remote.”
