It's the last regular home game of the season for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. They've already clinched the playoffs but could secure a home playoff game and possibly 3rd place in the next 2 games. If the Strikers win this Saturday they secure the home game. But the following Saturday the last game of the season will be against rival Tampa.
The Rowdies have already won the series against the Strikers and for the second season in a row have kept the Coastal Cup (Disputed between both Florida teams). But, the Strikers could finish the season ahead of Tampa in the standings in 3rd place (Carolina Railhawks and Puerto Rico Islanders have already secured 1st and 2nd). It's all about bragging rights at this point.
Atlanta comes to the Mecca (Lockhart Stadium) with nothing to win as they are already eliminated from the playoffs. The pressure is on the Strikers to secure their place at the top half of the standings and they'll want to do it in front of their fans. A win could, without doubt, bring a large crowd to the stadium and much needed boost to the team who has not made the playoffs since it's inaugural season when they were called Miami FC.
The Miami Ultras supporters group will also be giving out the 2011 Fort Lauderdale Strikers player of the year award. look for that right before the game!
